Dalton High School juniors and seniors who drive to school took part in a fundraiser and were permitted to decorate a space in the school parking lot.
DALTON This year’s student council is hoping to pave a new tradition at Dalton High School.
A student council fundraising idea turned into a project earlier this month that has added some pizazz and personality to the high school’s parking lot.
A senior representative of the student council presented the idea to Briana Reed, student council adviser, Chris Black, principal, and Craig McGinty, building and grounds supervisor.
Once this was approved, the planning began. Juniors and seniors who drive to school were invited to take part by purchasing a parking spot for $10. Designs had to be turned in and approved by the student council adviser and administrators. So students couldn’t go crazy, but they clearly had fun with their designs and added personality and color to make their parking space pop.
With their own paint and supplies, students put paintbrush to pavement and even invited some family members to help March 13 and 14.
“Our goal was to start a new tradition for students at DHS,” according to information provided. “The money brought in from the fundraiser will be put towards academic needs within the high school. … we felt this would be something fun for students to do given that it has been a crazy year. Students were able to interact and work outside while still following COVID protocols and guidelines.”
