A Beautiful Wall by our Students
Congratulations to the most recent Ben Franklin Award Winners Ms. Stephanie Studebaker and Ms. Lisa Cross. When classes started this August, everyone probably noticed the gorgeous mural painted onto the wall dividing PPP from the empty lot beside it. During the end of last year, Ms. Studebaker noticed the wall was always tagged with “gang-related” signs. Thinking it was a perfect way to improve the school and school community, she along with Ms. Cross set out to change the “artwork” on this wall into something beautiful that displayed our students many talents. Ms. Studebaker took the time and effort to make sure the idea was approved by all those who needed to be notified and Ms. Cross gathered all the supplies and donations needed for the project. With only a month and a half left of the school year, the two teachers along with supervision of other teachers and PPP’s students from 3rd grade and 8th grade set out to turn the wall into a magnificent wall of beauty. Ms. Studebaker, Ms. Cross, and their students are excellent examples of how we can help improve our school and community.
