May 16, 2015

As each day passes, I realize that it means we are closer to the ending of the school year and the beginning of summer where we hope to finish the classroom renovations (for the remaining 5 wings) as well as moving teachers into the new building.  We have a lot of classrooms and teachers moving rooms next year, so our custodial staff will be extra busy this summer!

Here are some photos from this week:

The 3 portables - P6, P7, and P8 - have been removed, and this week, we moved the storage container to the front end of the school.  Since P10 and P11 will be moved this summer. we needed to get the storage container out of the way. 
The CMU walls are going up for the special education classroom for our K-2 students.  Unfortunately, it won't be ready for the start of school, but hopefully, we'll be able to move in by the end of the first quarter. 
The tree was in the way of the covered play court and needed to be removed.  

This is another view of the special education classroom.

Just the trunk remained after the first day, and shortly afterwards, there was nothing but wood chips and sawdust.  Some of the students were concerned, and I had to explain why we had to remove it. 

Installed in the special education room for 3rd-5th graders
Learning life skills are as important as learning academics. Students will have opportunities to plan meals, to follow recipes, and to cook what they've grown and to clean up afterwards. 
This is a view of the learning hub, another area for students to meet and collaborate.  The first floor will house two second and two third grade classrooms.  Second graders face the street, and third graders face the gulch.  
The view of the library media/student center from the second floor of the classroom building.  The structural steel beams were placed last week, and now workers are installing the metal pan deck for the second floor.
By the end of the week, workers had made even more progress on the CMU walls for the special education classroom next to J4.

This is a close-up view of the front of the library media center. The steel beams are the roof line; the areas between the CMU walls and the beams are where the windows will be installed.  The library will have high ceilings and lots of natural light shining in.  
This is the metal pan deck in the Student Center side of the new building.  After this, I believe workers will start preparing to pour concrete for the second floor.
