St. Charles College Is Radiating Positivity

Restrooms are a place of necessity in a school, teachers Paola Gutscher and Jessica Demore wanted to make the restrooms at St Charles College a place with added significance.

After hours spent on Pinterest researching inspirational quotes, they quickly got to work.

With the help of EA’s Jodi MacDonald and Christina Nadeau, the ladies spent days creating vinyl decals with positive sayings such as “Spread Kindness Around like Confetti” and “A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear”.

“School can be a very stressful time for students with the assignments, due dates, and testing” said Poala Gutscher, “we wanted to remind students to look for the positive in things and that they matter”.

We can all use a reminder at times that we are enough, and many of the comments of the schools Facebook page come from parents, and community members saying they wish they had these simple positive reminders on their own hard days.

The mission of this project is to spread love, kindness, and positivity throughout the school.

So far, students have nothing but exciting things to say. There is hope to add more quotes throughout the school in the future.
