Frost Elementary School's tree mosaic takes shape

With the help of local artist Nicole Appell, Frost Elementary School students in Kirkland have created stones that are now taking shape as a tree mosaic on the school’s grounds.

Classrooms made ceramic stones with glass mosaic inlay in a variety of shapes ranging from about 8-10 inches across.

These stones were arranged  Sept. 23 in the shape of a tree at the point where two paths diverge behind the school, symbolizing themes from the Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken.”

On Sept. 30, the district’s grounds crew and volunteers will fill in between the stones and put the finishing touches on the work. This project has been a collaboration between the Frost PTSA, the school and the district’s facilities staff.
