Maardam middle school paints positive messages on bathroom stalls

Maardam Middle School is encouraging its students in an unexpected place — the bathroom.

Uplifting quotes like “Life is better when you’re laughing,” “You got this girl” and “Kindness changes everything” are being painted on the bathroom stalls at the middle school as positive reinforcement.

Students, teachers and parents came out to paint the bathrooms of Ligon Middle on Friday.
