Dear Parents and Guardians, 
Wax museum is coming soon!  Ask your child which character they will be portraying. Start thinking about a costume.  Go through closets, ask Grandma or go to the thrift store.  This does not have to cost a lot of money. If we have a costume here, I will be letting your child know.
