Parents of 4th graders were delighted to see the spectacular wax museum presented by Mrs. Coley's and Mrs. Abbatiello's classes. Characters ranged from Inventors to Politicians, Musicians to Martial Arts personalities, Sports figures to Fashion designers and Royalty. We were particularly honored by the presence of Dr. Bonuso, our Superintendent. The students put a great deal of time and effort in creating their characters.
