    Senior Painted Parking Spots

    (Click here to access the form)



    Class of 2021 senior students who submitted their parking application by June 19, 2020 and received an approved parking permit have the option to paint their own parking spot on the 4th level of the garage for an additional $50 (does not include permit, paint or supplies).  



    • To beautify the campus
    • To build school spirit
    • To create a senior tradition
    • To support Lamar PTO fundraising activities benefiting the students, teachers and staff of Lamar High School


    HOW MUCH? 

    • $50 to paint your parking space (does not include permit, paint or supplies). "General" parking spaces will continue to be available for senior students who do not wish to paint a parking spot. All painted parking spots will be on the 4th level of the garage (except for the reserved parking space auction winners).



    • Step 1: Once you have an approved student parking permit, purchase a Painted Parking Space for $50 here by Monday, August 31st.


    • Step 2: Submit a copy of your design to Mr. Jackson jjackso9@houstonisd.org (use attached form “Senior Parking Design Request”) AND the Student Agreement (attached) by Monday, August 31st.


    • Step 3: Once your design has been reviewed, you will receive an email (at the email address you provide on the Design Request Form) letting you know if it is approved, unacceptable, or if any changes need to be made. Design request form must be done in color and must represent exactly what will be painted on your parking space.


    • Step 4: You will attend 1 of 4 designated painting sessions on Saturday, September 19th or Saturday, September 26th to complete your painting. Sign up for a spot here. You may ONLY paint during the designated painting days/hours under school supervision.



    • Paint must be water-based exterior latex.
    • No spray paint, reflective or fluorescent paint permitted.
    • You must provide your own paint and supplies (consider sharing with others).
    • You must leave a 4-inch border from the white parking lines.
    • All painted parking spots will be on the 4th level of the garage (except for the reserved parking space auction winners).
    • You must social distance and wear a mask.



    • No offensive language, pictures, emojis or symbols.
    • No negative or rude language (Be nice).
    • No “gang-style tagging.”
    • No double-entendre (word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué or indecent).
    • You may include your name but no one else’s name. If you want to use a nickname it must be approved. (A boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s name is NOT allowed.)

    If you paint any prohibited items in your space, you will need to paint over the parking space, may face disciplinary action, and you may forfeit your parking permit with no refund.

    • Step 1: Check in with the school supervisor and get your paint approved.
