The Coastal Village Elementary School cafeteria incorporates the school values and a coastal theme representative of the Galveston locale. The school values are defined by the acronym WHISPER: Wisdom, Honor, Internal control, Spirit, Persistence, Excellence, and Relationships. The cafeteria walls are lined with multi-layer wall art highlighting each of these values. Other custom wall art and suspended ceiling décor emphasizes the coastal wildlife and aquatics. The rebranded servery, Coastal Café, showcases vibrant fruits and vegetables encouraging healthy eating. What once was a cafeteria with drab colored walls and little to no visual aesthetics is now a fully realized school environment that inspires students, promotes school values and strengthens pride of the local community.
