North Topsail Elementary School is excited to showcase the community-driven success of its Bottle Cap Mural Project.

Since April 2023, North Topsail Elementary School students, families and staff have contributed thousands of bottle caps toward the school mural project, transforming waste into a vibrant work of art.

Kindergarten students sorted caps by color, creating a visually appealing palette, while 3rd graders painted the mural’s background, tying into their Wit and Wisdom Module focused on the sea.

The next phase involved the drilling process, symbolizing unity and commitment. Staff initiated this step in November 2023, and now every student from kindergarten to 5th grade will actively participate in this transformative project with support from teachers and parent volunteers.

Interested media are invited to visit the school and see the mural on December 19 from 12:45 to 1:40 pm. Please RSVP ahead of time so the school administration knows who to expect. Call the school at (910) 270-0694 to RSVP.
