LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) - When the school year ended, a Lakewood girl was waiting for the Clover Park School Board to answer her request to create sidewalk chalk art during recess at Custer Elementary.

Then on Saturday - her ninth birthday - Sterling Norris received a letter from Superintendent Deborah LeBeau. Sterling won permission to draw outside with chalk.

Beginning in the fall, The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1m5Cqcn), chalk art will be allowed at district schools. Principals will designate areas and monitor content.

Maintenance workers had objected to Sterling’s chalk art.
