The Rainforest Art Festival at McKinley Elementary School last Thursday was a fabulous success with the “Enchanted Desert” mural and doorway being unveiled for the world to see. The students did a remarkable job, working in ceramics, mosaic and acrylic. We are especially proud of their amazing tile designs. Through a partnership with the El Centro Elementary School District and Rabobank, N. A., students participated in every phase of the design and fabrication of this outstanding work of art.
Principal, Karla Sigmond was thrilled with results. She participated in the design of the “hacienda style” entry, and marveled at how much it transformed her school. At hand to release the drapes were city councilman Jon Edney with help from branch manager of Rabobank El Centro, Randy Taylor and Brawley managerVictor Nava along with superintendent Dr. Robert Pletka and the banks regional vice president, Leo Fletes.
