Wax Museum 2013 Begins

The Wax Museum of 2013 has begun. It is only fitting that the Wax  Museum, something we dress up in costumes for, begins on Halloween. This is a year long project that ends in April with our big Wax Museum night. Between now and our Wax Museum event, we have a lot of work to do. Our work begins with phase 1: Character selection. It is very exciting to see who each student selects as their character. A lot of students are on the edge of their seat, hoping their top choice doesn't get picked.
This is a long project that requires a lot of work. So, you may ask yourself, "Why do this?" Well, as you will see in the video, we do this for many reasons. To learn, think, write, read, research, speak, listen, make a difference, experience, and be a part of a really good thing.
One aspect of the Wax Museum that makes this a dynamic project is how it's set up. To make our Wax statues come alive, coins need to be dropped in the buckets. This makes the Wax statue come to life and share about their life. So far, in the three year history of the Wax Museum at Brandon Valley middle school, we have raised over $10,000, all of which has gone to the Make-A-Wish foundation to help grant kids their wish. We have sent a two kids to Walt Disney World and sent a kid to Alaska on his dream fishing vacation.
This year, it is your turn to be a part of the Wax Museum and experience a project like no other. It is your turn to make a difference. Take this responsibility seriously and work hard. I am already excited for our big night in April.
