More than 65 Washington students delved into researching their favorite famous person or animal (in the younger grades), donned costumes, and presented the school's first "Living Wax Museum" on the evening of April 14. From Ben Franklin (above) to JK Rowling, students stood frozen in front of their posters and reports until visitors "activated" them for a one-minute monologue about their chosen character: someone who had made an impact on their lives.
Harriet Tubman. Sojourner Truth. Rosa Parks. All three women fought for freedom and social justice. Washington 3rd and 4th grade students celebrated their accomplishments and Women's History Month with a special assembly on March 4. Through special songs and readings, the performers recounted the struggles these activists faced -- and the bravery they demonstrated in the face of slavery, segregation, and unequal rights for women.
