Paint the Town Purple and Gold
Thursday, August 15
 
Please join us for our first annual Paint the Town Purple and Gold to help welcome students back to school for the 2019-2020 school year on Thursday, August 15 . We would like to make the trip on the first day of school extra special this year for our incoming Indians.

We love it when community members, parents, and staff members come up with ideas to help foster excitement in education for our students. This idea comes from our very own preschool teacher, Victoria Smith.

Help us to line the streets and roads leading to the school with motivational signs supporting all students for the upcoming school year. Many students already know that their parents and teachers support and value the importance of education, but let's join together in showing them that the community supports their educational experience as well.

Some example sign slogans are as follows:
Good Luck Indians
Chase Your Dreams
Always Try Your Best
Hallsville Loves You
Welcome Back Hallsville Students

Note: Please place signs the evening of August 14th so they will be viewable for students riding an early morning bus to school. Please remove signs by Saturday, August 17th. When placing your sign keep in mind traffic's view of the roads and sidewalks. When thinking of slogans for signs please keep in mind that we want to make all students feel successful and included.
