Today our new Be Kind mural was officially unveiled with a ribbon cutting ceremony. This mural was sponsored by retired teacher Mrs. Cooke and her mother. This past summer, volunteers worked for two days reassembling the original mural that fell a few years ago. Volunteers included some Whitney teachers, community members, and the Ben’s Bells team. Thank you to Mrs. Cooke and Mallory for our reminder to always Be Kind! Thank you to Mrs. Florek, Mr. Veteri, Mrs. Booska, and the PTSA for a beautiful celebration with such an important message.
