During the last week of school in 2016, artist Matt Lively worked with all fifth graders during the school day on a Chalkley mural. Matt designed the mural based on his version of the school mascot and created an outline for students to paint. Matt divided the mural into smaller sections, ensuring that entire classrooms could work on the project at the same time. Students were encouraged to “leave their mark” as they celebrated their final days at Chalkley before heading off to middle school. The mural was then assembled and installed in the front of the building to welcome all students and families to the home of the Roadrunners!
We are proud to honor the work of our former students and yes… They have officially left their mark here at J.A. Chalkley Elementary School!!
