Third-grader Vince Lancaster couldn't wait to show his mom, Petra Pistorius, the Egyptian-themed cat sculpture he made in art teacher Sarah Harris's class.

"That's all gold spray paint," he said, turning the golden work of art so his mother could admire it.

Other art included decorated miniature sarcophagi, brightly colored pharaoh masks and paper mosaics. When Queen Cleopatra appeared, as portrayed by Kirkland, the ancient Egypt theme was complete.

CHS volunteers help

Volunteers from the Crestview High School cross country team helped teachers in the library, while their classmates in the leadership program helped the smaller kids conduct science experiments.

"It's fun," Crestview High junior Josh Cyrus said. "It's great helping the little kids."

Visitors browsed science fair projects and discovered fun facts, such as orange M&Ms melt faster in a microwave, on average, than other colors. Awards for winning projects were presented during the evening.
