Annual event allows students to tap into presidential characters

The 11th annual Presidential Wax Museum was hosted at Port Matilda Elementary School last week. It’s an annual end of lesson project teacher Carrie Sharkey holds with her third-grade class. But this is her last year doing it. Sharkey is retiring at the end of the school year, and the project is being handed down to fellow teacher Sarah Stere.

Is that Calvin Coolidge?

Third-grade student Kaden Clark acted as former President Calvin Coolidge during the annual Presidential Wax Museum at Port Matilda Elementary School. Students in teacher Carrie Sharkey's class ended a six weeklong government lesson with an event that allowed them to dress and act as a president of their choice. Kaden was standing still against a wall at the school, but became activated when Sharkey pressed a faux button on his hand that made him come to life with facts about Coolidge.
