POMPTON PLAINS, NEW JERSEY, USA, March 26, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Olmsted Mural Group proudly announces the completion of a new school mural at Hillview Elementary School in Pompton Plains commemorating the institution’s 60th anniversary. Spanning an impressive 27 feet wide by 8 feet high, this mural adorns the all-purpose room (APR), enriching the school environment with vibrant scenes and local landmarks.

Under the guidance of Caren Frost Olmsted, and the Olmsted Mural Group, fourth and fifth-grade students, alongside their dedicated parents, actively participated in bringing this cheerful vision to life. The mural was initially crafted on parachute material panels within the school’s art room. It now graces the walls as testament to collaborative creativity and community spirit.

A celebration of Hillview Elementary’s rich history and enduring legacy, the mural intricately weaves together iconic local landmarks and cherished memories. Each letter of the large oval “Hillview” spells out a story, depicting the essence of the school’s journey from 1963 to 2023. From beloved landmarks to the school’s proud Golden Panthers mascot, every detail evokes warmth and nostalgia.

“Within the vibrant strokes of color lies the heartbeat of our school’s community, pulsating with the diverse voices and boundless creativity of our students. This mural not only adorns our walls but etches the spirit of unity and inspiration into the very fabric of Hillview Elementary.” said Allison Stager, Principal of Hillview Elementary.

The completion of the mural marks a milestone in Hillview Elementary’s history, serving as a timeless tribute to generations past, present, and future.
