Everyone knows February is the month in which our country celebrates Presidents Day. But did you know that the Babe Ruth candy bar is named after President Grover Cleveland's daughter, Ruth? Did you know that President William Taft kept his own cow on the White House lawn and every morning had fresh milk from her and that President Woodrow Wilson kept his own sheep on the lawn too? Did you know that LBJ knew the ABC's by the age of two and could read by age 4? Did you know that President George W. Bush was a Cub Scout and that President Andrew Jackson was the first president to ride on a train?
Those are just some of the interesting and fun facts St. Mary's 4th graders discovered when researching U. S. presidents. Those presidents came alive when the 4th graders portrayed them for parents, grandparents and other students during their annual "Presidential Wax Museum". Fourth grade boys portrayed such presidents as George W. Bush, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, John Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams. Fourth grade girls portrayed "first ladies" Martha Washington, Jacqueline Kennedy, Ida McKinley and Margaret Taylor. For more photos click here.
