A Living Wax Museum
Mrs. O'Meara's and Ms. King's second grade classes presented "A Living Wax Museum of Presidents and First Ladies" on June 18, 2009. Parents, staff and students were welcomed by Barach Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, portrayed by two second grade students. Thirty-six students researched, wrote speeches and made self portraits of selected presidents and their wives for a culminating presentation. This co-curricular project involved the help of many teachers, teacher assistants and other staff members at Ridge Mills.
