BRONX, NY – As the leaves change colors in Autumn, the facade of Truman High School got a little more color, thanks to the efforts of members of the custodial department.

“I said it was ready for a refresh,” said Principal Keri Alfano.  She had a conversation with members of the custodial staff.  “They took it from there and it looks fantastic.”

The lower brick facades and entry/exit doors recently got a fresh coat of paint.

The lower brick facades got a fresh coat of red paint, while entry and exit doors were refreshed in blue.  Finally, the Seal of the City of New York and the Department of Education Emblem were both emblazoned in silver.

“I noticed it right away,” said media teacher David Roush.  “At first I just noticed the emblems in silver because I walk past them every day, but after I noticed that, I saw the red brick and the doors.   It looks great.”
