Heroes of Love

The children in kindergarten painted a mural as a backdrop to go along with their connection sculpture. Since the sculpture represented personal relationships, the mural was meant to 'zoom out' and show some of the people who change the whole world with love. 

These are the people who make the world better and who teach people about love. "How did you decide who to draw?" a parent asked. "We thought about our greatest heroes" said Ian. "I drew Susan because I love her", Mathilda added. 

The children presented their work to their families on the second to last day of school, right before the portfolio picnic, when parents come to listen to their children read them their portfolios. It's one of the nicest days of the year.
