The 4th and 5th grade SAILS students from the D-G Elementary will be presenting "Night of the Notables" Tuesday, May 8, from 5:30 to 6:30 PM in the middle school lunchroom and auditorium. This will be an event where the audience can meet and learn about a gifted and notable person the student has chosen to research. Parents, family members, teachers, and community members are invited to attend.
Each of the "notables" will be featured in displays set up in the lunchroom. The displays will include photos, timelines, and research papers written by the students. Students will be dresses to represent their notable person. Displays could also include the notable's favorite food and other items of significance in the notable's life. There will also be brochures quests may pick up and take with them to read more about the notable person, and the students will be on hand to answer questions.
Following the displays in the lunchroom, audience members will play the game show "Do You Know Your Notables?" in the auditorium to test their own knowledge of the notable people.
