On Friday, March 4, the mural was officially completed with huge thanks to all the fith graders, teachers, staff and parents who generously offered their time and painting skills. I am so pleased with the final results. The fifth graders were a talented and joy filled group whose efforts are the highlight of my winter. Please note in the display cases a few of the terrific designs created by the fifth grade art classes.

help of several of the teachers and one parent who stayed after the kids went home and worked with me for two hours.
I'm planning on making the final touch up tomorrow and then I'll post some photos.
The fifth graders and the teachers have all been great and I've enjoyed this project immensely.

With the design work completed, we began painting on the wall in the main lobby of the school. To ensure that every fifth grader has several opportunities to paint, we've placed them in five person teams, working thirty minutes at a shift. At the end of the school day, as the kids head home, the teachers and I paint for another couple of hours. I'm hoping to be finished by this Friday. Will post more.
