The Educational Equity Alliance, a Mahtomedi and North St. Paul / Maplewood / Oakdale School District collaboration, sponsored several free camps last summer. Participants of "Creating a Multicultural Mural" camp developed, drew and painted three beautiful murals with themes of their choice: 1. Eco Friendly, 2. Community Connections and 3. Educational Equity and Diversity.

"Eco Friendly" will be displayed at the library in Maplewood, and "Community Connections" and "Educational Equity and Diversity" will be displayed at the North St. Paul Community Center through February 21.

Students from throughout the districts are invited to come to an open house at the Maplewood library Friday, January 21 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Enjoy the mural at Maplewood, discuss the project, listen to some music and eat delicious food. Come and celebrate!
