Hinsdale school fifth grade students next week will unveil their contribution to the school’s new addition which was first occupied at the start of this 2018-19 school year. As the first graduating class to enjoy the new facility, the 5th grade students agreed on a plan to create a mosaic of engraved porcelain tiles to be permanently installed on the wall in the corridor of the new addition. The class adopted “helping hands” as the theme for their display. Each student created a tile design expressing how they wanted to represent this theme. Their drawings have been engraved on 38 porcelain tiles and incorporated into a 64 tile mosaic that is being permanently installed in the corridor. This display will be seen for the very first time when it is unveiled on the 16th
