You may know them as the people who forget their library books, but inside they are the future athletes, inventors, entertainers and world leaders of the future. They are, the fourth graders of Wolf Hill.
As part of an annual tradition, Wednesday the teachers of the fourth grade presented their students in a wax museum like Madame Tussaud's famous New York City destination. Only these exhibits were shorter and needed help with their hair.
For their part, the students read biographies of their namesakes, wrote and practiced a speech and then performed it, again and again, as grown-ups milled about the gym, pushing their buttons. If they were nervous, we couldn't tell as they bravely embodied their characters and answered off the cuff questions from their audience and endured countless paparazzi photos.
It will be good practice for when they are famous.
Here's just a small sampling of the exhibits. Credits for set and costume design and hair and make up styling go to the parents, teachers and paraprofessionals of Wolf Hill.
