May 24th was the 5th Annual Living History Museum! We loved seeing these historical figures come to life and had a great time learning about how they have inspired students.

This year, the Living Museum raised $2,540.98 for WNC!

We are so grateful for the 5th grade students for participating, families and individuals for attending, and the teachers for organizing the event, especially Lynn Stenroos who started it all in 2013!

Since the first year, Mrs. Stenroos’ idea has grown to include all 5th grade classrooms and has raised thousands of dollars that support neighbors in need!
