TILES Welcome Visitors to Our School

The next time you visit Mount Prospect School -- STOP and take a look at the beautiful tiles that surround the door to the Office and WELCOME visitors to our school.

At Mount Prospect we are very fortunate to have students from many countries attend our school. To welcome students, parents and other visitors we had students design tiles with the words – “Welcome to our School” in 30 different languages. Many of the tiles were designed by students who are fluent in the language.

This project was a collaboration between Senora Reilly (Spanish Teacher), Mrs. Bivona (Art Teacher), the Mount Prospect PTO and ARTSONIA. Senora Reilly and Mrs. Bivona worked with the students (June 2006) to complete this project. Each student designed their tile on paper. Then digital photos were taken of each and the pictures were uploaded to ARTSONIA. Artsonia very generously made the tiles for us! If you would like to take a better look at each tile and you cannot make it to school, take a look at the gallery on
ARTSONIA. Of course, like many projects here at Mount Prospect we could not have completed it with out the support of the PTO. Thanks for helping to make this possible!
