SJS Tree of Kindness

Presenting the Tree of Kindness! 

All boys and girls in grades K-8 participated in creating this gorgeous tree of life. 
It reminds us that we are one tree, one school, branching out to all we meet in kind thoughts, words, and actions

Students designed circles to represent themselves and the gifts they share with others. Thanks to my fifth grade helpers who so kindly assisted me in gluing the circle "leaves".  (You can find this mural near the car line entrance and cafeteria steps). 

And so we begin the 2016 school year with our first collaborative artwork! 


  1. Mrs Monahan,
    You always do a great job teaching our students. This tree is absolutely beautiful.

  2. What an amazing idea! I love it - and it makes my heart smile! Thank you for being such a great art teacher!

  3. As always, I am in awe at the talent of our teachers and students.
    Thank you for sharing your gift of art with us all.
