FDES Famous Americans

adults dressed as famous Americans including Maggie Walker and James Madison



On Wednesday, May 22nd, FDES parents and staff members helped our 4th grade students review for their Virginia Studies SOL test. 

Participants dressed as famous Americans from Virginia history and stood by descriptive signs displaying biographical facts.  As 4th grade students arrived at school, they were encouraged to review the facts on the signs and chat with the members of our own Living History Museum.  Famous Americans included Woodrow Wilson, James Madison, Pocohantos, John Brown, Arthur Ashe, and more.

A special thank you to Mrs. MaryBeth Estes and her husband, Mr. Ken Estes for organizing this special review.
