Local elementary school dedicates mural inspired by books


A mural at a local elementary school is bringing books to life. 

The mural was dedicated at Las Mesa Elementary School on Friday as part of their “Bring a Book to Life” celebration. 

“This is really what it’s about, incorporating cultures and the languages, the arts and the literature, all of that coming together and you guys are the perfect example of what it is to really learn,” APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy said. 

Friday’s celebration also included award-winning author Rene Colato Lainez and a student-led book parade.
