Students add bottle caps to the Earth Day mural at King-Murphy Elementary School.
Mural creation caps Earth Day at King-Murphy

Thousands of plastic bottle caps of every color imaginable sat in tubs in the King-Murphy gym last Thursday, awaiting students to grab them and glue them onto an Earth Day-themed mural.

In the meantime, younger students watched a puppet show that explained why it’s important not to use plastic bags, while outside students created snow sculptures with environmental-awareness themes.

The kids had planned to plant wildflower seeds around the school grounds, but the last vestiges of the recent spring snowstorm made for a quick change of plans.
