July 29, 2016

On Monday, students return to school. We are ready! The construction crew and our custodians did a fine job of getting the school looking good! There are still areas with the orange fencing that act as barriers so students don't go into those areas. Primarily, though, the walkways are open. Here are a few photos from the past couple of weeks.

The grass in the back of the school is growing, but we need to wait a bit until the landscapers turn it over to us. Right now, the area is quite saturated and the ground is too soft. We don't want students ruining the area through overuse.

This is the handicap ramp from building J to the covered play court.
Getting the covered play court floor ready! 
Workers are laying down the floor. Next up - painting the floor and the lines. We will have a regulation basketball court as well as two smaller courts; the basketball hoops are retractable and can be adjusted to heights from 8 to 10 feet. We also have a regulation volleyball court and two smaller practice courts. In short, it is a fabulous facility for our students! Mr. Bevacqua and Mr. Enoki can't wait for it to be ready!
It took a little over a week to install these stairs in the student support area of the new building. Each stair weighed over 400 pounds and had to be placed just right prior to being welded. 
Right now, the peace pole looks lonely, but once the grass is planted and we add benches, it will hopefully have a calming influence for anyone sitting in the area. 
Workers continue to install the windows in the library section of the building. We are waiting for the last shipment of windows to arrive; that's why you see those areas boarded up.
It will be so nice for students to be able to walk all over campus without getting wet when it rains. 
Did you notice the new sign? It was installed this past week!
We had hoped to have the playground ready for the start of the school year, but the refurbishment is not yet completed. There are some pretty cool features; I think the kids will enjoy the new playground! 
The landscapers added plants to the area behind the new library media/student center. We've noticed that the oyster plants are easier for us to maintain so we prefer it to grass.
