Vandalism has been floating around the bathrooms ever since this school was built. From drawing on the doors to scratching out the mirrors or writing messages on the walls with Sharpie, it’s become a popular way for students to let others know that they were there or express their thoughts non-verbally. Although it’s looked down upon by teachers and adults, it’s become apart of school culture.

Every school you attend, you’ll most likely encounter some form of bathroom vandalism. Some classic messages can range from “___ was here” or a heart surrounding the initials of a couple. Others like to spice it up with names of other people. For example, in one of the upstairs women’s bathroom, “Josh Dun” is written over and over again on a bathroom door. Though, vandalism is not at all encouraged as a way to keep our school nice and clean.

Some punishments range from in-school penalties to fines depending on the severity of the vandalism. Lunch detentions, Wednesday school, in-house suspension, out of school suspension, fines, and plenty of others. Defacing of destruction of property is under RCW 28A.635.060 and is a more serious problem. Though this has been happening for such a long time, these codes most of the time don’t stop other students from “making their mark”.
