Lake Forest Park Elementary has completed a mural celebrating its 100th anniversary. Funded by a grant from the Lake Forest Park PTA, the centennial mural was created with the assistance of artist Mike O'Day.

With the help of art docents Susie Moore and Kathleen Berry, students created a PowerPoint presentation of the 100 years of history of LFP with photos and stories. They showed every class the PowerPoint and taught other students the history of the school. All students created drawings of their favorite part of LFP's history, including its former buildings or the dragon on the playground. Artist Mike O'Day took all the drawings and chose the best ones to be turned into clay. He worked with the students to convert drawings to clay. Every student worked on the mural in some way.

I am glad they included the Dragon in the mural. When I went there in the eighties we switched to being the Dolphins. Can't recall why that happened?
