Giving Thanks: Honoring Birnie Bus Company in Art

The students of Central Riverside Elementary are very fortunate to have reliable bus service to transport them to school every day and for the many field trips we take.   To thank them for outstanding service, we featured one of their company's buses, painted on one of the six painted murals in our school wide mural project. 

This month, executives from the Birnie Bus Service corporate office in New York made a special visit to to our school to see the murals depicting our school and community. They were so happy to be acknowledged that they featured a story in their company newsletter expressing their thanks. Students are learning the benefit of extending thanks to those who invest in our school.

Duval County Public Schools creates professional development videos on best practices to share during teacher trainings. My students showed them how it's done as we learn color theory by integrating math, science, music and movement into their art learning.
