December 24, 2015

This will probably be my last post for this calendar year. Much has happened from January 2015 till December 2015. Most exciting was the opening of our new classroom building in July! Our students and teachers enjoy their new learning space, and lots of quality teaching and learning takes place every day in those classrooms.

Here's what's been happening with the project. The next time I add to this blog, it will be 2016. Happy Holidays, everyone!

The walkway to the library will be completed soon. Workers kept this area open because they needed heavy equipment to access the second floor.
The Student Services Coordinator clerk has her own space to work.
This is the special education classroom prior to having the floor tiles installed. 
Masons continue to work on the CMU walls of the covered play court.
The tiles for the restrooms in the library building are done.

Waxed, burnished, and all done! We're waiting for one more approval before we can occupy the room.

December 10, 2015

Work continues steadily on our construction project. The special education classroom should be completed soon, and steady progress is being made on the library media/student center and the covered play court.

Winter is here so the sun comes up later; it's dark when workers start their work day at 6:30 a.m., and we hope for good weather so deadlines can be met.

I was able to take a few photos late last week but neglected to post them.

The ceiling was installed for part of the library.  
This area in the soon-to-be MakerSpace will have a different type of ceiling. (I forgot what it is called, but I'll ask the contractor.)
There was a different (newer?) crane lifting the metal plates for the library roof. 
This crane was lifting the column frames into place. Now we can see how high the covered play court will be!
The grass in front of the classroom building is growing. We are waiting for the time when we can use this area for physical education classes and assemblies.  Not all areas are grown in yet, so it'll be a little longer.
