🥳Calling all students and families of the Jersey City Public Schools!! The JCPS is celebrating its 150th Anniversary on October 28, 2023! 1️⃣5️⃣0️⃣
Our next stop on the #jcps150anniversary scavenger hunt is to visit the mural at the new PS #30 Alexander D. Sullivan School playground. #jcpsps30
What started as a 3rd grade science project in 2019 turned into a full scale reimaging of what a playground could be. In partnership with New City Parks, the Jersey City Public Schools broke ground on the playground in March 2021 and was completed by November. Over those months new playground equipment was installed, trees were planted, seating was added, and safety surfacing was laid down. However, one final piece was waiting to be added, the murals that you see in the photos attached, were completed by artist Louise Jones and Avery Nice in August 2022. The murals portray native plants and butterflies and seek to inspire student creativity and scientific thought.
