Jarvis Middle School art teacher Amy Roepnack volunteered her time this summer to brighten students' lives.
When students return to Jarvis this September, they will discover the stair risers have been colorfully painted and have uplifting words printed on each. Each set of stairs sports a different color—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The messages include phrases such as "Think, Do, Be Positive", "You Got This", and "Together We Can."
Her efforts dovetail with the school's ongoing efforts to lift spirits and to encourage everyone to be their best.
"These quotes and inspirational messages will be visible to students multiple times throughout the day as they use these stairs," said Mrs. Roepnack.
