Classroom in Lakeside Union School District Encourages Positivity with Words of Unity Mural

Lakeside, CA – December 30, 2020 – The Lakeside Union School District is promoting positivity and unity throughout the district and in the classroom! From meal pickups for the holidays to classroom exercises, Lakeside is cultivating fun and supportive activities. 

In Ms. Hess’s classroom at Lakeside Middle School, she had her students create a “Words of Unity’ mural. Ms. Hess and all of her class picked their favorite inspirational quotes and phrases about strength, positivity, unity, and compassion. They all filled in a heart on a large poster with their favorite message and uplifting images and posted it to the wall to create their mural.

Ms. Hess discussed the project saying, “The goal of this project is to help spread positivity and kindness and let everyone know whether you are in person or distance learning we are all in this together.”

Quotes on the wall included sayings like, “Stay positive. Better days are on their way,” and, “Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.”

While the year has brought many uncertainties, Lakeside Union School District will continue to provide support and love for all of its students no matter where they are learning from.
