"It was really fun. I'm really glad I got picked to help," said Paige. "My relatives go by and always tell me how good we did and the people from the post office told us we did a wonderful job."
Overall, it took the students approximately five hours to complete the mural. And, though Paige and LaValley said they didn't know if they'd ever pursue a career in art after they graduate high school, both admitted the mural was a project they thoroughly enjoyed.
"Throughout the day, customers and employees were complimenting the students on their work and, of course, who wouldn't like to hear that," said Ducharme.
As a token of their appreciation, the post office employees bought Ducharme and her students pizza, snacks and soda for lunch.
The mural is expected to remain in the post office windows through next month.
"Hopefully, this will become a yearly event," said Ducharme.
