Thanks to a generous donation from a Camas Ridge family, muralist Esteban Camacho and the students of Camas Ridge have created a mural that symbolizes our commitment to a welcoming, respectful, inclusive and creative learning community for all students. Each Community Time class helped design and paint the mural.
