THE BRONX - Students at one North Riverdale school had a hand in making a once bare wall come to life. 

St. Margaret of Cortona School students put the finishing touches on a rainbow-colored handprint mural that stretches the length of an entire pre-kindergarten hallway. 

The parent association also used some of its annual funds to recruit local artist Greg Kirschenbaum to help them brighten up the school's walls. 

The students say they're excited to have contributed to something that future kids will see for years to come.
