    I attended Morrill Elementary School from 1963-1971. I was a kindergartener in Room 108, and fondly remember the mural. It was visually comforting. I remember the brilliant colors and reminded me of the nursery rhymes my mother read to me before I started school. I am thankful that the mural still exists for children to enjoy this historical and beautiful artwork.
