Manteca High continues to use its resources on campus.

The latest example of that includes students in teacher Matthew McDonald’s Color and Design class creating a part of the school’s mission statement – “It’s all about learning” – on the Administration conference room.

Several options were offered, with the class using a simple critique process on each of the designs.

The final design was chosen by McDonald.

The design is that of three 2- by 3- foot wood panels covered with newspaper and glue to create a background of simple text.

Funding to complete this project – included were paints and other material – was made possible by the MHS staff and community members.

The MHS mission statement and words of the week will be incorporated in to the final project.

This school-to-career project also provided students with a work environment similar to that of a design team, according to school officials.

MHS, in addition, is in the process of constructing a green house using recycled plastic bottles.

The Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp along with students in Sam Dolson’s wood shop classes are involved in this project, which, once done, will benefit the school’s Ag Department.

Architectural Design class – Dolson is also the teacher here – redesigned the outdoor cafeteria quad area not too long ago.

The Advanced Art classes under Kirt Giovannoni, who has since retired, made possible the mural museum that’s made up of over 200 murals throughout the campus.
