Living history

Each year on Halloween, Stellar Academy for Dyslexics presents a Wax Museum. Beside each motionless Wax Museum model, students wait to present an oral report in full costume, representing their chosen historical character. As visitors wander around the school's patio, "activating" characters, they will be pleased and amazed by the students' creativity.

The creativity of Stellar student presentations is always impressive. Hard work invested over the first few weeks of school, researching historical characters, and time spent practicing presentations, pays off as visitors to the "museum" have expressed their admiration and delight at the event. Past characters have ranged from Cleopatra and Genghis Khan to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Teresa. Even the real-life soldier who inspired the G.I. Joe character joined the museum in a prior year. It will be interesting to see who shows up this year!

Please join with students of Stellar Academy this year on Wednesday, October 31 as history comes to life. The school is housed on the campus of Neighborhood Church at the corner of Cedar and Smith.

Stellar Academy for Dyslexics is a private non-profit school serving families from across the Bay Area.
