There aren’t many first-graders who can rattle off the definition of the word “clandestine” on request.

There might be even fewer who know what clandestine looks like.

But 7-year-old Max Feldesman, a student at Dillon Valley knows.

“It means secret,” Max explained, after donning the word–written on card stock and hung around his neck by a string–for the elementary school’s word parade Friday afternoon to help his classmates learn the definition as well.

The students, from pre-school up to fifth grade, learned interesting words, designed creative costumes [to demonstrate the words’ meanings] and then modeled their new vocabulary for the whole school and about 75 parents at the parade.
