SOUTH SCHOOL MURAL
Over the past several months, you may have noticed that the front hallway of South School received a face lift! Mrs. Angie Wilson and Ms. Sarah Forsythe worked with our 2nd grade students to create a hallway mural. In doing so, our students worked together to leave a small legacy here at South School with a mural that brightens our hallway!
Please view this VIDEO
to watch the process unfold!
