Creek View Elementary School gifted resource students will portray historical figures ranging from the Wright brothers to past presidents May 16-17 during the school’s “living wax museum.”

During the two-day event, GRC students will portray statues of historical figures in the school’s lobby, and will “come to life” when approached by a spectator, said CVES Principal Brent Byars.

“They will resemble prominent American figures, heroes and those who helped to shape the world into what it is now,” Byars said.

Every class at the school will walk through the museum on rotating schedules from 9-10:25 on May 16-17, and parents will have a chance to tour the display from 8:30-9 a.m. both days.

“The kids have read up and researched their American figures, and they will read information about that person when someone walks up to them,” Byars said.
