“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” – Aristotle
Much more than a fun art project, the Mosaic Mural at Alice Smith will represent each of the 90 sixth graders’ diverse cultures, talents and dreams. The mural is a lesson in empowerment, teamwork and community building, with students taking the lead in planning and managing the project. All students will learn from and about each other as the project unfolds; it includes, among many other important symbols, the flags of 26 different countries. This permanent reminder to the community that we are stronger when we work together will be unveiled to the public at the 6th grade celebration scheduled for the end of May.
