IVE Communi-Tree is Complete!

Stop by the MPR to see the lovely Communi-Tree masterpiece that our students, staff, and volunteers created!  This project celebrates the diversity and beauty of each individual at our school and illustrates that we are even more beautiful together.  

We'd like to extend our gratitude to the IVE PTA for sharing the vision and funding the grant that made Communi-Tree possible. Thank you to the Art Docent Program Community Art Team of Angie Warren, Andrea Hackney, Sara Ellenson, Liz St. Andre and Auryel van Gemert. A special thank you to PTA President Carla Geraci for her support, guidance, participation, and efforts to make this project meaningful for our community.  And finally, a thank you to the true inspiration for Communi-Tree; the students, staff, and wonderful volunteers at IVE for their enthusiasm, excitement, diversity, and beauty!

"We are each unique and beautiful and together we are a masterpiece."
