Back to school: ‘R’ is for ‘repainting’ at Roxhill Elementary

We got the tip from Lita, and made it over for a quick pic before sunset: Just in time for tomorrow’s first day of school, Roxhill Elementary has some fresh paint, thanks to donations including work by West Seattle contractor Al Keim, per both Lita’s note and the big “thank you” sign in front of the school. The overhauled “R” is perhaps the most notable result; it was one year ago that Westwood neighborhood leader Donn Devore worked to organize some rehab for the “R,” but ran into some red tape. (Our story from back then shows the R’s former state of disrepair.)

    The “R” caught my eye as I drove past it this afternoon. Looks sharp!

    Thanks everyone! It looks SO much better for the thousands of folks who drive on Roxbury every day.

    @hmmm: i’m curious as to what you think needs to be cleaned in the park behind the school? (i’m not suggesting there isn’t a need–just wondering what you think it might be)

    Noticed the newly painted “R” last week when we were at Roxhill for the “Back to School BBQ”… So thrilled that it finally got painted. It looks GREAT. Today, my 5 year old started K at Roxhill and we couldn’t be more excited. Woot!

    Glad to see the big R get a new coat of paint. Have a great year!
