Muirlands Mosaic Bench Club

The Muirlands Mosaic Bench Club has just completed it's 3rd bench in the series , titled "Infintiy Garden". Thank you to students Eric Haerr, Alison Endo, Maddie Bollinger, Emma Willis, Katilin Wheeler, Jordan Nieto who worked hard to add this bench to beautify the Murilands Campus . The students chose the color scheme of blues and white for an open sky/infinity look. They also created a fused glass border that creates a flash of sparkle when the sun hits the glass. Inbedded in the perimiter is the inspirational quote from Henry David Thoreau -" What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what like within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.'"

The stamped perimiter tiles also pay tribute to the parents who helped create the Infintiy Garden last year...a big thank you to Keri Goldsmid - designer, Tory Gulley, Alison Lee, Michelle Lanuti - plantscaping, and Corky Kessler - Muirlands landscaper!

English Teacher Mr Goldman stopped by to tell us that he likes to take his class to the garden for inspiration on reading and writing projects, and he never wants to change rooms. That statement fufils the purpose of the garden's design vision, so we are grateful that is is being used as an inspirational area for teachers and students. Next time you are on campus, check it out!

Sincerly, Jane Wheeler- Beautification Committee & Mosaic Club
