Crowning achievements for two of our teachers.
A special gift for our friend, Nyah, whose family is moving. A canvas painting of thumbprints from everyone in our school creating a growing tree. The leaves of the tree are Grades 2-5 students. The trunk and roots are the Kinders and 1st Grade students. Three 5th Grade students added rootedness with their thumbs at the base of the tree. All the fruits and flowers are the teachers favorite colors. The red thumb prints are strawberries--one of Nyah's favorite fruits.
The canvas was provided by Mrs. Cindy Smith--a loving parent of one our 5th Grade student's, Nathaniel "Viggo" Smith.
