Coach Rieger states, “I felt everyone stepped up and competed to the best of their abilities. We had kids competing in some events they don’t normally compete in and they met the challenge and really put it on the line for the team!”

Students in the third and fourth grades put on a Living Wax Museum last Tuesday evening, May 8. Students picked a historical figure, researched them and created a presentation. The evening of the museum presentation, students were dressed as their characters. To hear information on that person, one had to touch a “button” to “activate the figure.” Most of the students had the information on their person memorized.
