Wileman Elementary School fifth graders raised $621 for their school on Thursday, March 7, as part of the Wax Museum of Reading event.
At the event, students chose to be characters from books they’ve read. They stand statuesque (very, very still) as if they were a wax figure until someone puts money in their “bank.” Then, they come alive and tell their audience of parents, siblings, and friends about the great books they’ve read.
The popular event is making its way around our elementary schools. It has been done several times in the past at Turtle Creek Elementary School, too.
Often times, students dress the part of their character and have props to support their re-telling of the stories they’ve read.
Check out the pics and see how fun it was at Wileman that evening!
