On Thursday, January 25th, a “Career Wax Museum” was held at Memorial Elementary School. At this fair, the 6th grade students prepared information about a career they are interested in. They dressed up as someone in that profession would and brought props they would use in that career; e.g. a future doctor wore scubs and brought a stethoscope, a future cosmetologist brought makeup and hair supplies. Students in lower grades had the opportunity to pass through the fair and learn about the various careers from the students.
