Alexander Hamilton, Ronald Reagan and Walt Disney were among the luminaries spotted in the hallways of Frostig School on March 17. High school students dressed up as the historic figures they researched for Frostig’s annual Academic Fair. Middle and elementary school students presented dioramas and poster boards that showcased their research efforts.

Academic Fair is held every year on the Friday before spring break. The students practice public speaking by presenting their projects to parents, staff and classmates. “Students and families look forward to Academic Fair every year,” Principal Jenny Janetzke said. “The students pour their hearts into their projects and they love to share their knowledge.”
