Wednesday, folks at St. Teresa's School in Albany gathered for their annual celebration luncheon.

Visitors could check our their wax museum beforehand, where 5th graders dressed up as historic figures and with the press of a "button" and they came to life.

This year's theme is "Catholic Schools Raise the Standards."

"Catholic schools have a history of educating, especially the poor, but also people of all walks of life. So we just want everybody to know that catholic schools raise the standards in our nation and in Albany," said Mary Lou Gamache, with St. Teresa's School.

Wednesday, 8th grade students performed their own version of "Be our Guest."

And Thursday, teachers will put on a performance for the students.
