All women know that no matter how long they take to get ready in the morning… when they get to school or work and go into the bathroom they are going to look awful. Why? Because the lighting is terrible, the mirrors are terrible. The paint is often drab and the stalls are painted an awful off white that reflects onto your face making you look tired and washed out. We often leave the bathroom feeling terrible about ourselves.
Junior High aged girls are at a very sensitive time in their lives. Their self esteems are at an all time low and they are extremely self conscious. When they walk into the bathroom at school and look into the mirror, like all women, it makes them feel awful. When they girls go to class they aren’t feeling happy and confident. They want to hide and feel terrible.
I believe if we remodel North Jr High’s bathrooms or at least one or two… with the proper lighting and mirrors, better paint and a nicer environment, these girls will go back to class feeling good about themselves and confident.
This could raise class morale and participation. No one wants to raise their hand and have everyone look at them when they feel like they look gray, broken out, and tired.
I am not specifically picking on North, at all. This is a great school and I am proud my son goes there. Most buildings are like this. North just happens to be my local Jr High School.
Every penny donated will go to North Jr High in an effort to help them afford to remodel their bathrooms.
