WAUNAKEE -- On Friday, Feb. 28, fourth grade students at St. John the Baptist School presented their Saint Wax Museum.

Students from other grades and guests gave the fourth graders, dressed as saint wax figures, plastic coins and were treated to a short presentation on a particular saint.

Prior to being wax figures, the students each picked a saint and learned about their lives.

Many of the fourth graders picked their saint because it is their name.
