Spanaway fourth-graders paint 2 county snow plows

Painted snow plows

May 21, 2012

If you see a string of mittens or a cart-wheeling Santa Claus headed down the street during the next snowfall, you don't need new glasses.

These scenes were painted on two of Pierce County's snow plows on May 17 by fourth graders at the Elk Plain School of Choice in Spanaway. The activity was part of the county's National Public Works Week celebrations.

"This fun activity gave us the chance to educate students about our work during the winter months," said Kendal Willits, Public Works and Utilities maintenance program manager. "The students did an impressive job bringing their designs to life, and we can't wait to show off the plows. Thank you to Mr. Warnke and Mrs. Park's 61 talented fourth-graders."

The plows will be displayed at the Central Maintenance Facility, located at 4812 196th St. E. in Spanaway, during National Public Works Week, which runs from May 20-26. They will also be used in the Elk Plain area during future snow events.
