An INSPIRATIONAL School Learning Environment

Kendale Lakes Elementary prides itself in cultivating a positive learning environment so that each student through hard work, determination, and collaboration between the home and school may reach their full potential. The school staff and wonderful stakeholders have worked together to create inspirational areas throughout the building to visually stimulate our young learners. This design initiative can be seen in the classrooms as well as hallways and gathering places throughout the facility. Our school has been fortunate to have creative and talented personnel, especially the leadership and guidance of our fabulous Art Teacher, Ms. Kristi Atkison, who over several years has designed many murals to showcase key areas such as our Main Entrance, Media Center, Computer Lab, Cafeteria, Hallways, and Physical Education Shelter. Past Art Club participants have also left their work on display for our school family to admire. Additionally, working with our 2011-2012 Art Club, she has now begun working on a huge mural in the playground area as well.

School and classroom beautification is a very important part of our approach to inspire and motivate our young students and learners so that they can maximize their overall learning experience. As an outcome of this, another very unique part of our school environment has been the generous volunteerism of many teachers and staff members that were inspired by our efforts in beautifying our facility. For the past few years, dedicated employees, relatives, and community volunteers have expanded upon this inspirational campaign by painting classrooms and new murals over the summer vacation months. We have also been very fortunate to have wonderful community partners such as Home Depot and Palmetto Ace Hardware contribute supplies and or discount materials to make this possible. We have included pictures so that you may see just what a difference a splash of color can make to transform a room and inspire a generation!
