Members of the National Junior Art Honor Society felt that the bathrooms at the middle school could use some sprucing up. As a community service project, they used their artistic talents to paint inspirational quotes and images on the bathrooms’ walls, completely transforming the facilities.
Art teacher Jaclyn Gentilesco said she was proud of the students for making improvements to their surroundings while utilizing their art skills. “It was beautiful to see their ideas come to life,” she said. “They worked as a team, and I am proud of them.”
Through a commitment to educational excellence in a secure, supportive environment, the Wantagh Public Schools shall inspire students to develop a strong sense of individual worth and respect for others, to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers, and to fulfill themselves as concerned citizens in a diverse world.
