Volunteers Help Spruce Up White Bluff Elem. After Spring Vandalism

Posted: Updated:

White Bluff Elementary is going through a beautification process after vandals trashed the school in March. Volunteers want to help students erase the negative images and replace them with positive memories.

2nd grade student, Alexia Bailey, said it's hard to understand why her school was a target this past spring. 

"It was not very nice, it was very rude, and mean, and that was not cool," said Bailey.

Instead of looking back on sad times volunteers are helping students have pride in their school again. Bailey's dad along with his Foundation Financial Group co-workers donated their time sprucing up the place and adding picnic tables.

"Just the small things for kids mean a whole lot and changing something as simple as lines from yellow to blue makes it not as mundane for them walking to class back and forth," said Albert Bailey.

The Principal of White Bluff Elementary said it's great the community is pulling together.

"We are still dealing with the mental aspects of what happened. Our students are still wondering why those people did what they did to our campus so we are trying to make a conscience effort to make our campus more inviting," said Principal Chris Jacobs.

Principal Chris Jacobs said the vandalism cost $10,000 and everything has been replaced except for one copy machine. He also said a 21-year-old and 17-year-old were responsible for the damage.
