    Very cool! At first I was going to ask about the black bulletin boards but I recalled you saying in another thread that you have a N.O. Saints theme. :)

    Too bad they wouldn't let you paint the inside of the door black or gold, eh? ;)

    I know, Ted! I did paint the door to my storage closet, lol! Unfortunately, each wing at our school has doors of a specific color, and ours is blue. I'd just love to have it repainted so it doesn't look so nasty!

    I love the black. It really gives the room a clean feel. Also love the toolbox for those little items.

    Thanks, ThirdGrade! I think it makes my room look bigger, and between that, the curtains, and the soft white paint on the columns/walls, it definitely looks cleaner!

    Ted - YIPPEE!!! I just got off the phone with my FANTASTIC P - she said to paint the door, and she would deal with whatever the district says about it!!! I'm just going to paint the inside, lol.

    That's awesome, Pwhatley! :) Please do take photos when it's done. I agree...that blue has seen better days. :p

    Seeing as you do the saints, you should do a brief history on the fleur de lis (that IS their symbol, right?) Or a variation of it?

    Yes, the fleur-de-lis is their symbol (and practically that of the entire state, lol). Third grade's Social Studies focus is Louisiana (history, geography, etc.), so I'm planning on incorporating as much as I can this year!

    Interesting...we don't study our state, California, until Grade 4.

    On what do you folks focus in Grade 4?

    New Pics!

    [​IMG]
    Per Ted's wonderful suggestion, I painted the inside of my door to look much cleaner & match my Saints decor! (Yes, got permission first, lol). I still need to paint the door frame.

    Check out my students' lockers! I still have a little touching up, but they are basically done:

    Whew! I'm pooped!

    I was going to say the same thing. It looks very classy.
