Everyday Expectations Mural is Up!!!

For the past six months, students in Carin Lilly's and Peter Boardman's art classes have been working steadily on a mural to celebrate our new Everyday Expectations.  These are the three phrases that

provide the context for helping students make positive choices all over the school - in their classrooms, in the hallways, in the cafeteria and even on their technology.  Our goal is to have them constantly asking themselves "is this choice - safe, respectful and responsible?"  We know that likely if the answer is "yes" to all three, our community will be a much more positive learning environment than one filled with choices that fall into that "unsafe, disrespectful and irresponsible" category.   Today this new work of art was hung on the outside wall facing the playground - hopefully providing just one more
opportunity for everyone in our community to be reminded of how we hope everyone thinks and behaves even during recess or other outdoor activities.  Thanks to David Kelly and Randy Mushtare for their expertise in mounting onto our brick wall - and congratulations to everyone who took part in creating this beautiful expression of this important message.

Here also is a link to Carin Lilly's blog documenting how the piece came together with some great information and additional photos: The Making of the Mural 2016
