Construction Update - "Building for the Future" 

Our building is changing every day.  What you can see as you drive by the new school is installation of the windows and exterior paneling and a garage.  The site is being prepared for landscaping and sidewalks. The dirt work is running behind because of the continuing rain. 

Inside the building, wallboard is being installed and section by section walls are getting painted. Bathrooms are nearing completion.  Electrical work is ongoing. Journey Construction said they will turn the building over to us the Wednesday preceding Thanksgiving.

All staff are working to prepare for the move.  They are sorting and packing in every department in addition to their regular duties.  The moving company will be working the week of December 9. We will have everything ready for students to start classes on January 13.
