DPS Go Green Challenge News from the Schools!

West Side Academy Green Shirts!

Last Friday, April 22 as one of their Earth Week activities the Green Team at West Side Academy created t-shirts for the green team. The green team brought their own white t-shirts to school and they used spray paint and stencils to paint the shirts. They used blue and green paint for their shirts.

Along with their SC’s the stencils they created were of a globe and of a panther. Their school mascot is the panther and they wanted to use it with earth to represent their school pride of being part of the DPS Go Green Challenge!
