The Milton Elementary PTO hosted its first paint night fundraiser Jan. 31 for students and families of the school.
More than 125 people attended to paint ceiling tiles from the main hallway of the current Milton Elementary School, the former H.O. Brittingham School. Students were able to paint a picture of their choice, and many chose to embrace the school themes of kindness and friendship.
Once the tiles were dry, they were placed back into the hallway ceiling, where they will remain for the rest of this school year and the 2020-21 school year.
Once Milton Elementary is ready to move into its newly renovated school in 2021, the tiles will be given back to the families who painted them.
All proceeds raised from the fundraiser will help with student activities, such as field trips, and classroom supplies.
