Our elementary teachers and staff took advantage of early dismissal on September 5 to visit the elementary building, as renovation reaches the final stages.

Mike Stoltzfus, director of business affairs, updated them as he led the tour. Teachers began to dream about their classroom space taking shape, identifying where they would want their whiteboard or shelves hung, and how they were going to use “all that storage and workspace!”

Proximity to restrooms, deep window sills for “lots of plants” and other details brought energetic excitement to the team.

The building renovation is on track for the school to receive certificate of occupancy in mid October. A team of teachers, administrators and staff is planning for a K-12 “Making History Day” event in mid November when students of all ages will help with moving supplies and furniture into the finished rooms.
