A presidential enactment worth a hill of beans

From left, third-grader Emily Fleming, 8 (back to camera), as Ronald Reagan, hands out jelly beans, the former president’s favorite candy, to third-grader Olivia George, 9, and second-grader Ilsa Rivers, 8, during the Hall of Presidents exhibit at Perkins Elementary School on Wednesday. Divvying up their beans are third-graders Viktoria Ivanova, 9, as Rutherford B. Hayes and Anna-Marina Djordjic, 8, as Bill Clinton. To coincide with inauguration week, Anne Weller’s gifted second- and third-graders researched U.S. presidents, created exhibits and recited facts about their chosen leader of the free world.
