Art students throughout the East Meadow School District participated in a community tile mural at Mercy Medical Center to thank the staff for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The students designed a paper tile using drawings, pictures, collages and words to express their appreciation to the health care workers.

The messages were then transferred onto ceramic tiles and mounted with others made by the community to make two tile murals. The mural is currently hanging at Mercy Medical Center, serving as a lasting tribute to the team who helped during the health care crisis.
