San Miguel Elementary // Lemon Grove
Mural Artist: Isabel Halpern
Designed by Isabel Halpern, this mural serves as a welcome back piece to students returning to school after over a year of distance learning. Inspired by words and drawings collected from students, staff, and families, and by the 8 Leader in Me habits, the imagery in this mural inspires students and staff alike to look towards each other with a sense of calm, balance, synergy, leadership, acceptance, and collaboration. Symmetrical plants and budding prickly pear cacti remind all that growth and transformation are possible and constant. We hope that students can see themselves in the figures, excelling in the arts, offering seeds of ideas, and forming leadership, together around the bright light of learning.
