Repainting our Murals and Playground Maps

Project GoalBy repainting our murals with our community involved, we hope to instill in our students a sense of pride and ownership. Our murals currently depict beautiful artwork that has faded to an unrecognizable state over the years. We hope to refresh this artwork and to include words of positivity and encouragement for our students to be safe, respectful, and responsible, as well as, the awareness that all students can be career and college ready. Our school namesake fought for the rights of people in our community to have fair housing and education. Miller's family has visited our school to encourage students to be lawyers, or judges, or whatever, they want to be. However, there reality of being in a gang heavy neighborhood can blur the possibilities for students to see past their current situation. We claim that our school is a safe haven for our students. however,r we also want our safe haven to be a climate of love an respect for our community and all stakeholders. I think this project will not only benefit our current student but many more students to come and the neighborhood at large.
