For the fourth year, students in the school's three second-grade classrooms hosted the school's biography wax museum.
In March, the students work on their biography research reports and projects. At the beginning of April, the students invite parents, teachers, and other students in the school to take a tour through the room to check out the biography wax museum.
This year's crop of famous wax figures included noted children's authors such as Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl, early American heroes such as Paul Revere and Benjamin Franklin, and storied athletes including Joe Louis and Babe Didrikson Zaharias.
"Many people think that I was the best female athlete," Chevaire wrote in her report. "My nickname was Babe because I won the Babe Ruth baseball contest."
"When I was young, my Mom told me to quit boxing but I never quit and never gave up," Brito wrote.
