Surprise Extreme Home Makeover for Elementary School
They hope it's not just changing the walls, but the minds and attitudes of the students at Williams Elementary School.
It's part of Project Makeover--a program started by a University of Florida student last year that repainted Rawlings Elementary School.
"Painted walls, through having a stimulating creative learning environment, it will jump-start their minds into thinking forward about higher education, through pursuing a college degree," said Project Makeover Co-Director Samantha Reho.
Some of the volunteers will help give tours to the elementary school students and teachers Monday morning, followed by a pep rally.
Organizers hope to give another elementary school a makeover next year and work their way around Alachua county.
