In addition to displays and exhibits, there were several live demonstrations that captivated attendees as they strolled through the school.

Sixth graders put on a live wax museum as they stood stoically in character.

The students researched various historical figures and represented everyone from Dr. Seuss to Betsy Ross.

“This is such a great opportunity for the kids to show their parents what they have been working on throughout the year,” said Brittany Riesbeck, Hannibal school psychologist. “It really showcases the students’ work at each grade level and gives them a chance to see what their classmates have learned, too.”

As parents toured the building, it was evident that lots of learning, across all subjects, had been happening at DMK.

While sixth graders showed off their history knowledge during the live wax museum, other students performed music, displayed artwork and discussed projects highlighting various academic areas.
