Mars Area Elementary School is remembering a student who unexpectedly passed away shortly after graduating from third grade at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
In memory of Elliana Boatwright, the school’s library has dedicated a framed Harry Potter poster, along with a plaque, created by technology education students at Mars Area High School, with the words: “An avid reader, who loved Harry Potter.”
Students in the high school’s Manufacturing Technology classes also designed and built two kid-sized Adirondack chairs and a small table to accompany a poster and plaque. The students used a variety of woodworking equipment to design and build the furniture.
The chairs, table, plaque and poster are all on display in Mars Area Elementary School’s library alongside a picture of Elliana.
