Night of the Notables and Wax Museum

Good afternoon middle school families, 

NON Schedule
Night of the Notables and the 4th Grade Oregon History Wax Museum are coming up quickly. (April 27, 2017) This very special night (April 27, 2017) is one of the highlights of middle school and is a chance for your friends and family to see the amazing work done. Please mark your calendar (April 27, 2017) and clear your schedules! The night is not optional for students, as it is the presentation portion of their project and students are excited to share their hard work with you.
This year NON and the Wax Museum are being held at Cascade Heights, so be sure to get here early for parking! Everyone should enter through the front doors unless they need handicap access. 


5:30 - 4th graders arrive in costume and set up for the Oregon History Wax Museum

 5:45 - Wax Museum opens - All visitors are encouraged to visit the Wax Museum

 6:00 - Middle School students must arrive at 6:00 p.m. The doors will open for guests at 6:30 p.m. You may be thinking, "What am I going to do for 30 minutes while my student is getting ready?" Well, I have a great opportunity for you! Ms. Cantin's fourth graders will be entertaining you. They have been studying Oregon history and will have their wax museum set up. While you're waiting, visit each of the wax figures and push their button to hear their recordings.

 6:30 - Wax Museum closes. 4th graders are encouraged to attend the Night of the Notables portion of the evening.

 6:30 - At 6:30 the doors will open and you will be invited to start questioning the notable characters. Each character will be wearing a number and your job is to match that number to the list of characters provided. Remember, you only get three questions per character and you can only ask yes/no questions. If you'd like to do some research ahead of time, the list of characters is below! At 7:15 the notable characters will set up their display boards and you'll have the chance to match your answers to the real answers. How many do you think you can identify correctly? Students will be ready to leave WITH their display boards at 8:05. 

If you have any questions, please let us know!
