Every year, 5th grade students participate in a 'Wax Museum." During the weeks leading up to the Wax Museum, students choose a historical figure, who has made a positive impact in their community or for the world. Students research their person and write a script which they memorize. They then learn about the 'art' of performance, how to memorize, speak clearly and present the character. Students design costumes and after much practice, the school halls are lined with great historical figures ready to share their lives.
This year Rosemary Alexander from KTOO Public Radio interviewed parents, teachers and students during the event. The link below takes you to the KTOO page.
Michael Penn from the Juneau Empire also came and took photos which were published in the paper.
