In case you missed it here, we had a bit of work done over this holiday break. A shiny new boiler was installed, to replace the previous monster (estimated at 90+ years old!). AND, we re-tiled our school foyer and front stairwell. Stop by when you get a chance to see the finished product in person!
While our school and transition programs are taking a much-needed break, a team of holiday elves has invaded the school building! We're replacing our nearly 100-year-old boiler AND re-tiling our entryway.
Here's what it looked like as the work started Monday:

The top two photos are our North classroom; the bottom two are our South classroom.
The construction teams finished work on our second floor last week, and the cleaning crew came through to spruce things up a bit. I've never seen those floors so shiny!
From top-to-bottom: The top two photos are our north side classroom (previously carpeted). The bottom two are our south-side classroom. Both have new floors, newly painted walls and ceilings, and an added chair rail / vinyl wainscotting along the bottom of the walls
Students and staff returned from Winter Break this year to a welcome surprise - Santa's elves had begun renovations on the school's second-floor classrooms. Those two classrooms had been in great need of a little TLC! With new floors, patched and painted walls & ceilings, and the addition of some durable wainscoting, the rooms will look good as new! They're not -quite- finished, but here's a sneak peek of the work-in-progress ...
