Lane Kruse became John F Kennedy at the Emerson Elementary fifth-grade wax museum. The event was organized by the fifth-grade teachers to connect students to history and teach them research, writing and public speaking skills. Students portrayed people who left their mark on history.

There was an Elvis sighting at Emerson Elementary on Friday. And he wasn’t alone.
