A new mural will welcome Miltona Science Magnet School students back to school next week.

Located in the school's media center, it promises to spark children's interest in earth, nature, science and math as they begin another school year Tuesday.


With colorful images like a rocket ship, a dragonfly and a hot air balloon bursting out of the pages of an open book, the mural is also designed to fire up their imaginations.
