RCK's Amazing "Night at the Museum"

For the school’s third-grade ELA and Art Night, RCK featured walls of displayed artwork and a very special “Night at the Museum.”

The students chose historical figures to research, then wrote speeches using biographical information. During art classes, they drew portraits of their chosen figures during the portrait unit. On the night of the event, each third-grader came dressed as their figure, standing as still as statues in front of their presentation boards, which were set up on tables. A yellow circle at each station was used as a button, and when visiting parents pushed the buttons, the “statues” came to life and gave their speeches.

“The students did an amazing job and I was truly impressed,” said Principal Hillary Bromberg. “All who visited that night enjoyed pushing the buttons and watching the children perform.”
