IN PICS: Wax Museum of Reading 2018

Darien Elementary fifth graders came to life as characters from their favorite books in the annual 2018 Wax Museum of Reading Event! The event is a fundraiser for the class trip to a springtime Milwaukee Brewers game. The event was held over two days and featured students from all fifth grade classes at Darien. Students acted out their books when attendees dropped money in their buckets! Looking good, students! #CometProud
