The 6th Annual Lower Elementary White House Wax Museum
On February 10 at 2:00, we celebrate our Annual White House Wax Museum, performing 60 seconds of live history to our families, friends and schoolmates. In Dana’s computer classes, she has been teaching us the research process on Wikipedia for Kids to help us learn their lives, impact and, most importantly- character. While we have not always seen perfect moral character in our 44 White House couples (the Clevelands are counted once), the public’s expectation of near perfection remains. Stepping into those roles on the Wax Museum stage is not unlike assuming the role of our school mentors who are reminded, ‘Be PERFECT around your younger schoolmates because we told them you’re PERFECT!’ But the exhaustion of being a 6-12 year old role model pales in comparison to a 4 or 8 year term living under a never-ending media microscope. Nobody’s perfect, but being a perfect role model is always a nice goal to have.
