New School Update

17 days until we are out of this building and into the new one! We had the chance to tour the new building (and, most importantly, our new community learning spaces) yesterday and all I can say is "WOW!" It really is a beautiful space.

I took a gazillion photos and put together a visual tour for the students in our community to see. I want them to be a little familiar with the space before they step foot in it. They need to know that it is THEIR community. They were super excited to see it and really got the concept of one large common area with four classrooms off of it. Wish I could show you some of it here but admin has decided that the children are going to see their new learning space first and then parents will see it. Walking in on the first day is going to be a big deal!

I am so looking forward to being in the same working space as the other two divisions in our community. It is difficult to do things the way we want to with the distance between us right now. That said, I will totally miss my wonderful room in the old building. I have had the cream of the crop. Windows on the south and north side, huge floor space, bathrooms in my room, water fountain in my room and a view that makes me feel like I am in a tree house.

My new view will be of the front lawns of the houses across the street. At least until all of the landscaping goes in on the new site. From the bits and pieces I have heard about what the parent gardening committee is working on, the outside of our school is going to be as amazing as the inside!
