    Out of this World Color

    Vibrant colors, hundreds of hands, spinning planets, dark expanse and sparkling stars are filling the 3rd floor and all around the building at PRM.  The 4th/5th grade classes of Ms. Donnelly studied the planets this quarter.  The students created beautiful models of the solar system and took courage to present their projects to the class.  On the third floor, there is a sprawling tree with colorful paper hands  – traced on colorful paper, cut out and hung on the wall from every student in 4th, 5th and 6th grade – each with their name and their character strengths. Between the first and second floor on the landing you will find…
