The south wall of campus now has a mural celebrating music, thanks to Mrs. Dokken’s middle school choir, PULSE.  Choir members started the project on May 6th, painting the wall with a simple, white base coat.  The following Monday, the students could be found carefully outlining the templates of the picture.  Vibrant colors were added over the next two days.

To encourage teamwork on the project, the students’ names were put in a hat and drawn out to decide who painted letters, staff lines, or the clef.  The students enjoyed working on this project, even while finding out that it is not as easy as it looks to draw or paint on cement.
