Parkview Elementary Students Involved in a Good Cover-up

Paint pans, donuts, brushes, chocolate milk, paint rollers, orange juice, drop cloths and old clothes. That was the line up for third and fourth grade student council members at Parkview Elementary School in Lamar Saturday morning, April 2.

Principal Diane Nye noticed graffiti had marred the tennis practice wall at the playground parking lot, brought it to the student’s attention and asked for recommendations. The obvious came through, “paint it”, which is what the students did. A second team tackled the orange skate ramps adjacent to the parking lot, as they too, were marred by graffiti.

Principal Nye said the students learned a lesson that their actions and decisions can have an impact on their community and their lives. Nye said this wasn’t the first time the graffiti occurred, “last year we had markings done in chalk and we just washed it away each time it appeared.” She said the police department advised the best way to deal with graffiti was to get rid of it as quick as it appears.
