Living Museum Day Performance Schedule

Our 4th grade students will take you on a journey back in time as they perform for our annual Famous Texan Living History Museum on Friday, May 27th! The class performance schedule is as follows:
  • 10:00 - 11:00 - Flores, Eddy, & Weltzin homerooms perform - YEEEEE HAAAWWW!
  • 11:00 - 12:00 - Beasley & LaCombe homerooms perform
  • 1:30 - 2:30 - Lau & Heim homerooms perform

We would love to see you on Living Museum day! Feel free to come and support your little Davy Crockett, Bessie Coleman, or Ladybird Johnson if you are able. Performances will occur as scheduled above and will be upstairs in the 4th grade neighborhood.


A few reminders -

  • Poster board for the museum displays was sent home Wednesday, May 11th. If students would like to use something other than the white posterboard we provide, they are welcome to. Museum displays must be completed at home and are due back to school no later than Wednesday, May 25th.
  • While students are expected to dress as much like their Texan as possible on museum day, it is not our intent for you to purchase items specifically for this purpose. Let us know if you have any questions.
  • A one minute video of last year's Living Museum can be found below if you would like to see what the event has been like in the past.
