THE WALLS ARE ALIVE WITH COLOR
During the last two weeks, the halls have been transformed. Colors and graffiti artwork have been added to improve the visual environment at GHLS. The graffiti artwork highlights the seven character traits that are studied in the Character Formation Project curriculum and our school vision, love, learn, laugh, and lead. The colors of the walls were chosen based on the mood and emotion they represent: Yellow – energy, happiness, Blue – trust, serenity, calm, Green – peace, loyalty, resourcefulness, Orange – confident, healthy, innovative. A special thanks to Zen Castillo for the amazing graffiti artwork and Jaymee Harvey Wilms for developing the painting proposal and the colorful creativity she added to the school.
