O’FALLON – Fifth graders at Delores Moye Elementary School made history interactive with the first living wax museum. Students began working on the project in January by first choosing who they wanted to portray.

Students stood at various stations in costume as famous Americans such as Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Michelle and Barak Obama, Michael Phelps, Henry Ford and many more. Visitors and children from other classrooms could go up to the stations and push a button, which would then launch the students into a speech about the person they were portraying and their accomplishments.

O’FALLON – A young O’Fallon resident and student at Delores Moye Elementary School won a regional award that recognizes positivity in area youth. Camden Cox, a fourth grade student at Moye, won the Do The Right Thing award in November.

According to their website, “Our mission is to develop and promote positive choices by the youth of our community. Driven by the collective efforts of police departments in the Bi-State Region, Do the Right Thing of Greater St. Louis opens lines of communication between law enforcement and youth by recognizing kids’ positive behaviors and actions.” Do The Right Thing has several corporate sponsors, including Memorial Hospital, Lindenwood University, the Science Center, the Magic House and more. The ceremony to honor winners is held at the St. Louis Police Headquarters downtown.

Jamie Cox, Camden’s mom, is a third grade teacher at Moye and explained that Camden was one of ten winners across the Metro-East region for the month of November out of over 100 nominations.

Camden was nominated by his teacher, Lisa Poignee, for his actions helping out students that were new to not just Moye, but to District 90 and O’Fallon.

“On the first day of school, Mrs. Poignee asked if anybody wanted to be their lunch and recess buddy. On the second day, she asked for new people to volunteer, and no one raised their hand, so I volunteered again so they didn’t see that no one raised their hand,” Camden explained.

Camden served as a lunch and recess buddy for the new students, showing them the ropes of purchasing lunches, inviting them to sit with him so they weren’t alone, and showing them around the playground and going over routines and rules.

“Especially by fourth grade, some of the groups of friends are already developed, and he’s in class with several of his best friends, so it was nice that he was welcoming these new students into an established group of close friends, and they’ve become part of that circle,” Jamie said.

For being one of the ten winners, Camden won a basket with gift certificates to the Magic House, McDonald’s, a $25 Visa gift card and other goodies.

“He’s always been a very compassionate child and always roots for the underdog. He’s very aware of other people’s needs and emotions. His father, Troy,  and I are very proud, but not necessarily surprised that he would do something like that,” Jamie said, and continued “He said ‘It’s not a big deal, Mom. It’s just what people should do.”

O’FALLON – Delaney Hall is at it again and this time she’s helping to provide water to struggling people in India.

This is the third year in a row that Delaney, who is ten-years-old and will be going into fifth grade at Moye Elementary, uses her birthday as a way to help the less fortunate. When she turned eight, Delaney asked her party guests to bring pet food and supplies to donate to local shelters. Last year, Delaney collected fabric which was made into blankets that she personally donated to sick children at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

This year, Delaney collected shoes, which she gave to the Shoeman last week. All total, Delaney collected 2,004 pairs of shoes and $104, which will help fund a well in Kajjarla, India which will benefit around 600 homes. The estimated cost of the well is $5,000.

Delaney doesn’t know what she wants to do for her next birthday but she’s always open to ideas and suggestions.

Delaney would like to thank the following for their support: Moye Elementary and Olson Orthodontics for both agreeing to be drop off sites, Renner Technical Computers for donating the use of their trailer to transport the shoes, and the many family, friends, neighbors and strangers who donated, helped tie shoes together and load the trailer.

Delaney is the daughter of Lynn and Eric Hall.
