River Dell Students Become Famous Americans To Raise Money For A Good Cause

Second grade students at River Dell Elementary School recently became "Famous Americans". As part of their study of famous Americans, each child researched a famous person, dressed as that person, and gave a speech about them. Parents, relatives, and friends were invited to visit each second grade room's " Wax Museum of Famous Americans ". The children were wax figures that came to life when a donation was placed in a cup on their desk. Once they came to life they gave a speech about themselves and then turned into wax again. Visitors activated different children over and over again with their generous donations. River Dell second graders raised $646.00 for the Johnston County Animal Protection League. The money will go towards helping domestic animals in need.
