Mrs. Levine's fifth grade class has been working on their masterpiece for the past five months.
The three main colors of red, white and blue represent unity and patriotism during a tragic time.
With the help of Roanoke artist Judith Damon, a homemade dove will complete the mural.
When it's finished later this week, the mural will be displayed in the lobby of Herman L. Horn Elementary School.
