To fight littering on the quad, new signs have been installed with the slogan “A clean school is a happy school.” The new slogan replaced the previous phrasing “Most people clean up after themselves.”
The signs are part of a joint ongoing effort between Head of Upper School Audrius Barzdukas and the Prefect Council to make the school a cleaner environment.
This particular wording was suggested by Barzdukas and subsequently approved by the Prefect Council along with other slogans to be rotated onto the quad in the future.
“We did recognize there was a negative reaction to [the previous wording] with a lot of students so we decided to try a different route,” Head Prefect Michael Wagmeister said.
The signs were originally installed in September with the idea of minimizing the work of the maintenance team.
