A Glenmoor paint-in
It takes many individual tiles to decorate an entire wall but Glenmoor School students and parents were more than ready to take on the challenge. A new tile wall destined to become a local landmark under the Glenmoor marquee sign at the entrance to Glenmoor School began to take shape on Saturday, February 21 in the school's multipurpose room. Artists of all ages converged in this venue to prepare 250 tiles for the wall. These tiles will not only be decorative, but display the thoughts and creative talents of the artists as each was able to paint their own unique design on the tiles. The tiles were painted with the able assistance of Color Me Mine of Fremont which provided all materials: tiles, paints and pallets, brushes, and sponges along with words of advice and encouragement.
Although this tile painting project began as a fundraising idea, it became much more. Families were able to spend creative time together and felt a historic significance as their efforts will leave a lasting impression on the school. School personnel including Mrs. Jennifer Pereyda, Ms. Erin Sieck and Student Council members Katherine Ellis, Jacob Yagi, Jacob McCluskey, Heide Linsao, Blake Bermuda, Paul Cisneros, Clarissa W. and Robert Cisneros helped make the morning an outstanding success.
The Glenmoor School Student Council has a number of ideas on how to spend the money that was raised. The most popular is to put a bench or two by the portable classrooms for students to use during recess.
