Im just curious who if at all possible to approach about possibly getting some sorta painting done to that school. Its such an old school with nothing but plain white walls. Im not even a student and feel bad my kids have to go to such a blah place. I realize they are there to learn. But atleast Etown schools have some color and life when you walk in there. Girls bathrooms are pink, boys blue. Artwork on the walls everywhere! I seriously think GC Burkhead needs to try to improve on the eyesore of a school. Give it a warmer feeling for the students. And do something with the playground already!! Its had orange rope for a yr now. I pay quite a bit in taxes towards the school. Please Hardin Co make some improvements!

No I do not have shit for brains thank you. I just dont like my kids having to go to a school that looks like a jail or something. But I also dont have other worrys about the school. They have good teachers and plenty of supplies and all the other things one would typically worry about!

It's pretty much at the principals discretion.

They are allowed so much money each year for stuff like that.

The summer is when just about all the improvements are made. That, and also any time school is out.... Fall break, spring break, etc.

If it has plain white walls, it's probably because the principal wants it that way.

I don't think there's any approval from the board or hoops to jump through with stuff like that. Like i said, it's a matter of what the principal wants to spend the money on.

I pretty much agree you'd have to have shit for brains to post something like that. Jesus Christ, woman are you not f'n crazy?

What did you want? Lime-assed green? What's your favorite color? Would that make a damned difference? You're one of the most shallow people I've read that posted stuff on here. Color of the damned walls and ropes on the playground. Can't you make it about someone at the school having an affair? or who's got the biggest rack? This is topix... we don't care about colors on here unless it's of your skin.

Thank you. I hadn't heard. Would be nice since all the other schools in the area have been remodeled or newly built. That school is pretty old and could use major upgrades!

Im not a parent, I kept my legs closed. and really i wouldn't care what color was in my kids school. they go to learn not look at the walls. unless you have a wall looker.. we call them retarted... now if you have a retarted one that looks at color and then drools, then maybe the short bus will see they get new color. lol

Maybe they think there's less of a distraction with less color. I honestly don't know but it is pretty blah. My kids love it anyway though.

You are an idiot. According to you they have great teachers, plenty of supplies, and you are complaining about the "look" of colors on the wall. How about you pay for the paint stupid ass. Really? E'town schools have parents that pay tuition to attend their schools and E'town has more rich individuals paying taxes and donating money. If you feel you fall within this definition then pay and go to E'town schools. Otherwise, be greatful that you have supplies and great teachers you shallow bitch. Only a freaking shallow, self centered woman would post something this ignorant in the economy that we have.

These haters obviously don't have children and wouldn't get it. Go back to the topics you're used to about bashing and let the parents have one post.

I dont think all this is neccesary. The parent just asked about what could be done. Not for others like you to be so hateful. And matter of fact my child has complained to me about the school too being so boring without any color or decoration. So shes not the only one who feels this way. I agree with you parent too. Wish they would do something to livin the school up.

Then you stupid women, get together and use your welfare checks to pay for the paint, move to the E'town school district, or go into the public and beg for money. Either way, be glad of having great teachers, plenty of school supplies, and all of the other necessary stuff. Try living in Lexington or Louisville inner city then you will have something to cry about you selfish, self centered crazy ass women. Wanna know whats wrong with kids today? Crazy people who think school is for fun and decoration and not an educational institute. Grow up and quit whining. What do you expect on topix a freaking tea party? Its topix for God's sake. Again, get educated. hahahahahahaha

Welfare checks? Where does that even come into play? I dont think anyone mentioned welfare. You sound like you need anger management. And please go on and let the parents talk.

Obviously because some people just wanna be negative and cause drama and be ugly. Makes no sense. Ofcourse some of us work for a living and dont know about the welfare checks other then our taxes going towards them!
