In the 2015-2016 school year, Riverside Elementary School, in collaboration with its community partner DanversCARES, completed a “Healthy Living, Healthy Learning” Mural Project! This project is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the JTS Foundation.
All students K-5 have had an opportunity to participate in mural design concepts (initial student drawings), and each student had at least two art classes to participate in the painting of the project. A family paint day was also held.
You can view a video of the first and second phase of the project https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNFzrrbYnQ0.
Drive by Riverside Elementary School to see the finished project! A video of the mural unveiling will be posted soon.
