The fifth grade students at Park View have been studying the lives of famous Americans to prepare for the annual Park View Wax Museum held on November 15, 2011. Each student was responsible to write a report, prepare a poster, and dress up as their chosen American. Under the direction of Miss Allred, Miss Shumway, and Miss Hutchinson, the students practiced patriotic songs such as “America Is,” “Proud to be an American,” ”This is My Country,” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag.” All their research and hard work culminated in an exciting evening in which the students shared their findings with their families. Miss Allred said, “All the students did an excellent job preparing and presenting their famous American to the school and to their parents.” Miss Hutchinson added, “It was an impressive event. The fifth graders knocked the socks off the audience as they recited their memorized speeches from famous American’s lives.” Miss Shumway commented, “The students sang the best I’ve ever heard.” It was an amazing experience for students and parents to be reminded of the people who have gone before that made this country such a wonderful place to live. Park View Bees are Proud to be American!
