Since November, members of the Jefferson Elementary art club have been giving up recess time to create a rainforest mural in the art portable. Art teacher Erica Cook discussed the layering of a canopy and animals with the kids and their creativity took it from there.

"Our mural is more than a pretty picture," explains Cook. "The students have demonstrated their knowledge of the principals and elements of art. It's been rewarding listening to them plan and problem solve. They've made this art portable come alive by putting their talents together."

Families at Jefferson Elementary School will have to wait a few more years for scheduled improvements, but they'll end up getting a whole new school instead of just a new wing. The Richland School Board gave consensus Tuesday night to rebuild the school as part of the district's $98 million bond approved by voters two years ago. Only the 1953 wing was originally set for replacement.
