Del Rey Woods Elementary School students painted fruits, vegetables, and their favorite physical activities onto ceramic tiles. The collected "fruits" of their labor now grace the school as a colorful mural intended to remind students of the importance of eating healthy and staying fit.

Artist and retired educator Leela Marcum oversaw the student artists, muralist Chris King coordinated the installation of the tiles. On June 4, the completed mural was unveiled to the students and public.

Del Rey Woods Elementary students are learning from Health Educators like Nazarie Whipple of the Monterey County Health Department to start right by eating healthy and moving more. This event brought children, staff and parents from Del Rey Woods Elementary School out in force to celebrate the unveiling of this colorful reminder of the importance of living healthy.
