In addition to the activities pictured above, our site painted 8 classrooms and made a welcome sign mosaic for the school entrance. After the day was over, it was really cool to see all the colorful changes throughout the school. Then we hopped on buses to meet the other 5,000 volunteers downtown at Daley Plaza to review and celebrate. What a great day!
