AVON, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Lunchtime is a midday retreat for both students and teachers -- they're able to take a break from schoolwork, refuel and chat with friends. However, enjoying downtime in an unpleasant cafeteria can be tough; that's why FrogTape® brand painter's tape, and their construction and design team, will make over one lucky school's lunchroom as part of the 2015 FrogTape Love for the Lunchroom cafeteria makeover program. Three schools in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) have been selected as finalists, and online voting will determine which cafeteria receives a $10,000 upgrade.
"We had such great success with the 2014 Love for the Lunchroom program and truly made an impact with our first makeover," said Bill Kahl, executive vice president of marketing, ShurTech Brands, LLC. "The students, faculty and parents at Benjamin Franklin Elementary were so excited, and once we saw what a difference we were able to make, we knew this was a program we wanted to continue. It's a profound feeling to contribute to our surrounding community and we're thankful to be able to partner again in 2015 with CMSD."
The three finalist schools are all within the CMSD, which is near ShurTech Brand's headquarters in Avon, Ohio. After evaluating a number of schools in-need, three finalists were chosen.
Sunbeam Elementary School
- Date built: 1921
- Number of students: 260
- Interesting fact: Sunbeam is the only school within the district that offers a therapy pool to accommodate its high population of orthopedically handicapped students
Luis Muñoz Marin Elementary School
- Date built: 1977
- Number of students: 650 - 700
- Interesting fact: Luis Muñoz Marin teachers use a dual-language model, so all of its students learn both English and Spanish
Charles W. Eliot Elementary School
- Date built:1954
- Number of students:470
- Interesting fact: To show support towards the school's high population of autistic children, every Friday the staff wear T-shirts to support and create awareness for autism
Voting ends on August 18th and entrants may submit one vote per email address. The winning school will be announced in September, and the cafeteria makeover will be completed and revealed in January 2015. FrogTape brand spokesperson and design expert Taniya Nayak will lead the design of the new space and Tom Bury, FrogTape spokesperson and construction manager on Food Network's "Restaurant: Impossible" will spearhead the renovation.
FrogTape is the only painter's tape treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology. PaintBlock reacts with latex paint which instantly forms a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, creating crisp lines and helps prevent paint bleed. There are a number of tapes available within the popular family of FrogTape products, including FrogTape Textured Surface, FrogTape Multi-Surface, FrogTape Delicate Surface and FrogTape Shape Tape, the brand's first painter's tape cut into unique patterns that allows homeowners to quickly and easily transform a space with paint.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
