I must say that I think my school has THE COOLEST janitorial staff around. Where else would you find a head custodian willing to let three (3!!!) teachers paint some of their walls black??!! My team and I usually spend the day before school starts putting black paper up on the walls to help our posters and signs pop. Well...that gets annoying. And it wastes paper! So, we approached our custodian to ask permission to paint instead. Gotta love him!
Here are some before and after shots of the new walls:
Don't mind the one on the right that I forgot to paint...it'll get done. Swear. :)
