Dos Pueblos students stood strong today despite walking onto their heinously vandalized campus.
In the aftermath, many DP students took to Facebook and Instagram to share their pictures and their feelings about the event.
The red and blue spray paint around the school angered many students, but also made them even more excited for the much anticipated rivalry boys basketball game tonight at San Marcos.
On Instagram, pictures of the act were posted all around causing people to comment on the unnecessary act of sportsmanship shown. Many students were upset and angered about the event calling it, “trashy” and “immature”.
In DP’s “Gold Mine” Facebook group, many students posted online to get other students pumped, and “rowdy” instead of pointing fingers and blaming San Marcos for the vandalized walls of DP.
With heads held high, the Chargers still put on a pep rally at lunch causing everyone to have a more positive attitude then they may have had this morning seeing the tragedy for the first time.
This is the second vandalization that has happened to DP’s campus this school year. The first was at the end of the football season when a dummy was hung off the gymnasium roof wearing a Dos Pueblos football jersey causing anger and a stir amongst the students.
The lesson that many students wanted to get out and have others learn is that actions really do speak louder than words. Hopefully the result of tonight’s game will demonstrate that.
