If you look close you can see that this building is getting ready to be painted. You can see where some of the old paint is chipping off. Kind of like the Golden Gate Bridge, which is so big that it is continually in the process of being painted, a school is continually in the process of being repaired. Last year the portables were painted and the roofs were checked. At some point in the fall we had large room numbers stenciled onto the buildings with a Sammy the Saint logo next to them. Also, this year there was a cleaning of the gum residue from some of the sidewalks over by the business classes. We got new paint around the Administration building and now the painters are moving out toward the rest of the campus. Continual maintenance also includes the up keep on the practice fields; some of them grass, (like the soccer field), some of them dirt, (like the infield of the softball diamond), the daily cleaning of the bathrooms, and the disposal of trash in every room.
During the summer all the rooms are cleaned: the desks are washed, the carpet shampooed.
So, I would just like to say thank you to the maintenance people that take care of where we spend our days. This school is old, and from previous pictures you can tell it has its issues, but they try and make it as neat and clean as they can, and the staff appreciates it!
