Vejar students present history quilt to Walnut Mayor

Students from Vejar Elementary School visited Walnut City Hall today to present Mayor Mary Su with a birthday present for the city’s 50th anniversary.

The third-graders presented a community quilt that pictured the history of Walnut.

Two classes partnered for a social studies unit on community history.

For this project, students created 12-panels for the quilt. They also performed a reader’s theater version of Walnut’s history.

Mayor Su said she was very moved by the students hard work and presentation. Read about the unique present in an upcoming story in the Walnut Highlander.
