For Bennett Day Upper School's Fall Trimester, Melanie and the 8th/9th graders collaborated on their first Upper School mural. The students had free will of designing a mural that best  represents Bennett Day's very first Upper School class. The students communicated their ideas to Melanie as she brought them to life. 
"We want this mural to represent our pride in being a part of Bennett Day School, our respect for diversity, and the acknowledgment of current times that we live in."
