Getting down and dirty

Secluded in its own little niche just off of the 210s hallway, it's unlikely that many Blazers have ever actually been inside the greenhouse.

Junior Falla Mathieu bends down. After a moment of concentration, she gently tosses a ball forward. It bounces once, twice, then glides down the gym floor before coming to stop.

What really makes it hard to find your way is that all the classrooms look the same. Imagine if each room had its own unique decor or theme, making them easy to distinguish not just by the number on the door, but by what it actually looks like.
