When Juniors Tamatha Lancaster and Dejah Harley were invited to be tutors at the Lit Lab, they quickly came up with bigger plans.
Back at the start of the school year, the Lit Lab, located on the third floor next to the Drama Studio, was a mess– there were marks on the walls and in general looked ugly.
They decided their first step in improvement would be to paint it. In early November, they closed the Lab for two days and gave it a new coat of green paint in two tones.
They also arranged for a couch donated to SLA to put in the Lit Lab. This which make students, tutors, and teachers more comfortable.
Both Teachers and students are appreciative of their work.
“The Lit Lab renovation shows the best side of student ownership at SLA,” said English Teacher Larissa Pahomov, “We hand control of the Lit Lab to tutors every year and we’re happy that Dejah and Tamatha decided to go the extra mile.”
To make the lab even better, Lancaster and Harley plan on adding more seating and hanging posters and paintings to further improve the Lit Lab.
“We’re going to do some really cool painting in here to make it look more home-y,” says Tamatha, “not just a place where people come to get help.”
