Fifty-four students from the
Sophomore Honors student, Mary Beth Dixon, says "Paint-A-School is one experience that I would never take back and would do over and over again. It is difficult to put into words just how rewarding the experience was for everyone involved."
The mural that was painted in the playground was composed of self-portraits that had already been made by the children. The images had been blown up, and
Mary Beth also commented, “I wish I could have been there on Monday morning when the children saw it all for the first time. It was a very up-lifting experience, and it proves that a little goes a long way.”
The students long hours of hard work paid off in the end. The school looked great! These students helped make a difference in the lives of the children, community, and staff of Public School 59.
