Finally, there was an unveiling of Magruder’s 50th Anniversary Mosaic made by the 8th graders last year. This project was started by Mrs. Liverpool and Mrs. Peterson last year for students to remember Magruder’s 50 years as an excellent school in Torrance. Eighth graders submitted sketches and one was chosen by a committee. Then some 8th graders put the mosaic together in Mrs. Liverpool’s class during their spare time. It will be displayed in the hallway after the new construction is finished.
