The 4th Graders at Village School Create a Lasting Impression! 

You may have noticed the beautiful mosaic installed just outside the front door of The Village School, but did you know that your child was involved in creating it?! Thanks to Mrs. Madden & Mrs. LeBlanc who established an artist in residence program with a renowned artist using a grant from The Friends Of Marblehead Public Schools. He worked very closely with the 4th graders this fall to create the masterpiece you see today. The children were involved in every step of the process, from coming up with the theme, to drawing different images, to working with the tiles to create the mosaic. The result is absolutely beautiful and they should be very proud of their work!”
