All year long the Environmental Committee has been collecting plastic caps. Those caps were used in a variety of ways, including to make this amazing mural that was hung outside the Learning Commons.

Thanks also to the fifth graders who helped glue the caps, and to everyone who collected caps. Happy Earth Day!
