Fifth grade students under the direction of Mrs. Merrill & Mr. Kleve held their annual “Great Americans Wax Museum” last week (February 15, 2019) that focused on famous Great Americans in history. This is a culminating activity that the fifth graders work hard on for about a month and a half. These fifth graders not only learned about history, but demonstrated proper research skills, writing skills, art, design, and speaking skills ...to just name a few. We know these young people are inspired by the great Americans they research as well as the ones their fellow classmates research/portray. A huge thank you to the staff, parents, community leaders, district leaders, state leaders, and media for attending this event. It was a special treat to have Nebraska Lieutenant Governor Foley and his family attend the event. Once again, we want to thank everyone for their attendance and support. ... See MoreSee Less
