Biographies of the Famous

Can you guess who these famous persons are? Each year, third grade students read a non-fiction biography of a famous man or woman. The students then come dressed as that person to present the story of their life. The students also make their presentation to our school neighbors, Mrs. Blatner's First Grade Class. All the pictures will be archived in a Gallery. Find this year's Gallery in Student Life, Galleries, Biographies 2017.
