    On May 12th, fourth graders -- dressed as famous people from all walks of life -- presented a "Living Museum" for their families.  The museum was the culmination of what has become an annual project known as "Character Connections", in which students focus on ten important character traits, and learn about them through a variety of subjects.  Along the way, they use and refine many different skills, both technological and creative.  They find parallels to themselves and those around them, and grow not just academically, but socially and emotionally as they learn the importance of recognizing and incorporating these traits in their own lives.
