Danville Primary School second-graders bring heroes to life

DANVILLE — Second-graders chose heroes, researched their lives and dressed as them.

The students of Danielle Bronowicz participated in a Heroes Fair for family and friends recently in the Danville Primary School.

They created a poster board to use for their presentation and were given the option of dressing up and getting in the actual character of their hero, according to Bronowicz.

She holds this special program because her college professor, Dr. Dennis Denenberg, was very enthusiastic about bringing history to life for children and to let them know that these people who have books written about them were just like them at one point, she said.

“Often they overcame many challenges and obstacles in life but with hard work and determination, they achieved much success,” she said.

She refers to a quote from Denenberg who said, “Children need to see that they can achieve just like real heroes — they can make mistakes, learn from them, keep striving and eventually succeed. ‘I can’ is a powerful message that real heroes can teach.”
