September 22, 2016

On Monday, we received our Certificate of Occupancy for the two new buildings - the library media/student center and the covered play court. Yeah! Now our staff can occupy the building! They're moving their things in and aside from waiting for some furniture to arrive, they are ready to make the final move to their new offices.

Right now, we are undergoing a parking lot repaving project. The State fast-tracked the project so that everything will be done now rather than later. We thank our school community for their continued patience and understanding throughout the construction!

Our bike racks were moved inside our fenced area. Our bike riders love it! We opened the fire lane gate in the morning and the afternoon, and pedestrians and bike riders don't have to go all the way around. It's safer, too! We hadn't thought about opening the gate before, but now that we've tried it, we will continue to open the gate before and after school.
The contractors fixed the curbs of the walkways by the parking lot. Today, they painted the curbs red. 

The pavers brought their equipment on Monday and got right to work. The project is scheduled to be completed by October 7.  
Our staff enjoyed playing in the covered play court at a Wednesday team-building activity. Now we have a place to hold school-wide assemblies!

It's really almost done! We may be able to occupy the new buildings as soon as next Friday! We still have several furniture deliveries and finishing touches to complete, but for the most part, the buildings look pretty ready-to-occupy. We can't wait!

Several layers of emulsifier were applied, and the volleyball poles are in place (they are removable).  
Putting in the stationary screens at the covered play court
Boxes of books that were in storage are waiting to be unpacked.
The court area is painted a sand color, and the outside is this vibrant blue
I enjoyed watching the workers painting the floor; thy use a squeegee to spread the paint, and the lines are so straight.
Wow! Doesn't it look awesome?

Our librarian and library aide are starting to shelve the books.
Hopefully, we'll have some volunteers assist with unpacking and shelving all the books from G4 as well as those that were in storage.
The sliding doors are now installed; they're quite heavy! 
Painting the lines for the courts - I cannot believe how beautiful this covered play court is, and I cannot wait until we can use it!
