Special Considerations for a Changing School Environment
“Since many of our textbooks are online and our students have a 1:1 iPad program, we realized our students were using their old lockers for lunch boxes, sports bags, water bottles, and not much else,” Carla Moyer, Head of Middle School at Cannon School, says.

But they’re also a great, secure storage solution for employee break rooms, garages, gyms, hospitals, mud rooms, offices and basically any other space you can think of!
In the immortal words of the Beach Boys, “Be true to your school…” And nothing helps you show off your school spirit more than sporting your school colors. Having set colors builds morale and allows students to express school spirit. But what are the most popular school colors out there?
