Pell School Logo

At the end of the school year last year, in all of the art classes at Coggeshall, Cranston-Calvert, Sullivan and Underwood, students created thumbnail sketches of what the new Pell School logo would look like.

Each student sketched anywhere from five to 20 designs. Fifteen finalists emerged, but the winner of the contest was Caitlin McCabe, whose logo now symbolizes the Pell Elementary School. Caitlin is currently a fourth grader at the school and was honored at an assembly, with her peers and parents, for her creativity and ability. Cassandra Paniagua and Michael Sinay Alvarez came in second and third place respectively.
