The changes and discussions about removing the contents on the wall next to Mr. Tackmann’s room have been up in the air for months. At some point, there must be room for change. Principal Gurk and several teachers have come together and picked senior students who they thought could help represent a better and more positive message to be painted over the wall. Among those students, we have the artists, the planners and the organizers.

The wall displays students’ struggles and experiences at home, school, and within their community. This wall shows everything bad someone in our school has gone through. It’s a reminder of something bad every day to students every time they pass by.

Principal Gurk, teachers, and students all want the wall to convey a positive message and help to create a welcoming environment. When we have community members walk through our school, we want it to feel welcoming and embracing, not sad and upsetting. As a school, we should display a comfortable setting and a welcoming center.

Some Art students have been discussing the wall with several different administrators and staff.  Students have began coming up with a plan for the new wall by making sketches and reviewing plans for the upcoming project.
