Mr. Michael Conn has included "Dress Up Day" as part of his curriculum for 40 years. And, the event never gets old! Students choose an American historical figure who has impacted history or pop culture in the 20th Century. The project forces students to "get out of their comfort zone and grow," according to Mr. Conn. Daishanis Rodriquez chose Julia Child for Dress Up Day, and in her live presentation she shared not only information about "herself" (as Julia Child) but also some sweet treats for the class (pictured below). Daishanis had this to say about Dress Up Day, "Fear is something in your mind and there are ways to overcome it. This project definitely forces you out of your comfort zone. If you are positive, you can do anything. It was fun, and I enjoyed it once I overcame my fear of speaking in front of the class." Other figures portrayed were: Leonard Cohen, Martin Luther King, Jr., Joan Jett (teacher Mrs. Morgan), Will Rogers, Zelda Fitzgerald, Charles Lindbergh, Franklin Roosevelt, Freddie Mercury, Peter Pan, and more!
