Wordless Wednesday: The Endangered Species Mural at Juana Briones Elementary School

One of the things I love about the public schools here in California is that the buildings are often covered with murals painted by the students. This week for Wordless Wednesday, I’m highlighting portions of the Endangered Species Mural at Juana Briones Elementary School. The mural was painted by the school’s fifth grade class of 1994.

It’s Girl Scout cookie season, and that means we get to talk to all sorts of Girl Scout alums about their experience selling cookies back in the day.

So of course, we had to know: Were Thin Mints really only the third Girl Scout cookie to be introduced?
