The Partridge Elementary yarn bomb installed during the 2017-18 school year was recently highlighted in the December 2018 / January 2019 issue of Educational Leadership magazine.
The theme for the issue focuses on the arts and creativity in schools and in particular, the capacity of the arts to foster creativity and improve both academic achievement and social-emotional development.
The article details the way the yarn bomb, created in celebration of diversity, gave students an opportunity to learn cross-curriculum lessons and promote the idea of unity among all cultures and backgrounds.
