Historical Person Day

Yesterday was Halloween, but at Children’s House it means something more...Historical Person Day! Every year, on October 31, our upper elementary students dress up as a person from history, living or dead. Before the big day, the children research and write a report about the person they have chosen. On the 31st, they present a short, first-person speech, in costume, to parents, classmates and staff. The life stories they tell are sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes hilarious and always thought provoking. We ALL look forward to this day.
