West View second graders participate in Global Traveling Mural Project

Posted Friday, January 6, 2023

Second graders in Heather Herger's class at West View Elementary School collaborated with schools across the country to participate in the 2022 Global Traveling Mural Project!

Students first created a 10-foot long mural with their chosen theme of kindness and positivity inspired by Pittsburgh’s own Mr. Rogers. The mural included his famous quote, “I care about you no matter who you are and no matter what you can or cannot do,” along with positive words and phrases and drawings. The mural was then cut into 10 one-foot pieces and mailed to nine other schools who also sent pieces of their mural to West View.

Such a fun project!

West View received mural pieces from schools in New York, Texas, Missouri, Vermont, New Jersey and Illinois! The collaborative mural is on display at West View with information about each school underneath their mural piece.
