The first known 5th-Grade Legacy Project was a mural that in 2011 transformed an otherwise bland hallway with an explosion of images.
Since 2013, the 5th grade has annually produced a large-scale artwork or other project to help make Thurgood Marshall even more special.
Parent/guardian volunteers, with assistance from the PTA and staff, lead the effort, but many of the ideas, creativity and elbow grease come from the students. If you are a 5th-grade parent who would like to be involved, contact email@example.com or watch Pup Press for details.
