Lincoln Street Mural Project

A Mexican muralist came to Zoe's school this last month and completed, with the help of the students, several beautiful murals that now decorate the walls of the school. The students had input in what they were painting and the colors, everything. This is the mural that Zoe helped paint. She painted the blue dots on the right side of the mural.
We got to watch traditional Aztec dancers. The drum beats gave me goosebumps! Watching people share their culture in such a passionate way is truly inspiring.
Zoe pointing out her picture on the wall of Lynx Leaders. Students become Lynx Leaders by demonstrating leadership and positive behaviors towards schoolwork and their classmates. When they receive 30 paws-itives (their school mascot is the lynx) they become a Lynx Leader and get to go to special lunches and get treats.
Another beautiful mural.
Entryway mural.
