  • Student 'Wax Museum' at Walter Elementary

    Second graders at Walter Elementary School turned to wax, so to speak, as the stars of the second grade’s annual Famous Americans Wax Museum Jan. 23. The students had researched and prepared a project on a famous American who has made a positive contribution to our country. On the day of the Wax Museum, they dressed as their famous Americans, and each set up a “booth.” The famous Americans sat motionless, wax-like, holding a pose until a visiting adult or student pressed the button at their booth to free them to move and to recite a short informational report on the famous American they were portraying in wax.
