GATE Students Impress with Wax Museum

Highlands Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) students in grades 1-8 dressed to impress for the annual live Wax Museum event held on Nov. 29 at Highlands Elementary School. Students presented themselves as famous historical persons and "came to life" for passers-by to explain who they are and why they are important.
