Lindenhurst students turn trash into treasure

Posted: Updated:
LINDENHURST -

Third-graders in Lindenhust learned that trash can become treasure.

Students at West Gates Avenue Elementary School teamed up with local artist Leslie Sattler to create a mural with bottle caps.

The mural reflects a message to support the school's motto - Kindness Rocks.

The students say they're happy to see trash on the canvas, instead of the endangering wild animals.

The mural, which is about 3 1/2 feet tall by 8 feet long, will hang in the school's entranceway.
