As you know many things have changed here at the Primary School over the years, however one memory seems to be ingrained in everyone's head...the exciting Dinosaur Wing. According to Instructional Assistant and former RBPS parent, Donna Sickels, Mary Mason was the teacher in first grade who spear headed the Dinosaur Wing with other first grade teachers. In response to various literature, science units, and personal student interest, the students worked with their teachers to create colorful murals depicting various dinosaurs.
Mrs. Sickels states, "I just remember how excited my children were in first grade when they were part of the Dinosaur Wing and were able to write their own names on the wall near their dinosaur! Whenever we went to school we all had to visit the Dinosaur Wing and find their names. Even as the years passed, I still found myself walking down the Dinosaur wing to find my children's names ...memories!"
Imagine walking down the hallway and how a child's face would light up with delight when he or she first viewed the dinosaurs. Although we had to paint the hallway this summer, the murals are forever preserved on our Photo Gallery for the world to see. Many thanks to all the staff, students, and parents involved in the project.
