Blue Ridge Elementary School

Blue Ridge Elementary School is one of six K-5 schools in the Walla Walla School District. It is also home to the district's Head Start/ECEAP Preschool Program. The mural of faces on the exterior walls of the main entrance was painted at least 25 years ago, and yet it still reflects the diversity of the school as well as the greater Walla Walla community. The self portraits were drawn by the students themselves and then transferred to the wall where they were painted in situ.

Even after all those years, looking at these faces always makes me smile.
