Families returning to the Lower School may have to look twice when walking in to the Education Building to make sure they are in the right space. Over the summer, behind yellow caution tape, dozens of workers transformed the halls and classrooms that house grades 1-4 into innovative, flexible learning spaces.
Thanks to the generosity of the contributors to the Charging Ahead Campaign, Phase 2 of the Innovation, not a Renovation is complete.
Walls are now comprised of brightly colored sheetrock, whiteboard/chalkboard surfaces and tackboard. New carpet, new ceilings and shiny hardwood hallways grace both floors, ready to welcome the contagious joy of students and teachers alike.
New, flexible, mobile furniture has been added to each learning space to provide students the opportunity to learn in different ways. Even the surface areas in the restrooms, including walls, stalls and flooring, have been replaced.
It’s an exciting time to be in the Lower School. Come by during orientation on August 11 for the reveal. It’s going to be a great year!
