Lissa Lycan’s eighth-grade language arts students at Cortez Middle School worked to beautify the school during the Feb. 9 school day.
According to Lycan, every Friday, her students participate in exercises that teach them to be good citizens.
The classes help clean up around the school or do projects, such as the fence weaving project.
“They weave these colors into the chain-link fences around the school to create designs and make them look a little nicer,” Lycan said. “They have been planning this and designing it and picking up trash to raise funds from the PTO to fund it.”
Designs included mountains, the state flag and a message that reads “Go Jags,” an homage to their school mascot.
The designs face the highway outside the middle school.
