The past week the library has been receiving a make-over with a fresh coat of paint. The school community got involved and lent their help to make this transformation a possibility. Teachers, students, and even the principal rolled up their sleeves and grabbed a paintbrush. After a morning of setup, during which the teachers assembled scaffolding and mixed paint, the work was ready to begin. The teachers and students climbed on scaffolding to reach the highest sections of the walls and by the end of the first day three of the walls were completed. Groups of teachers and students returned two additional days to complete the painting. The space has already begun to brighten up thanks to the new colorful walls. A transformation has truly begun in the library and we all cannot wait to see the finished product!
