A new school for a new century
Most of our staff have taught in our 80-year-old building throughout
their teaching careers
by Mary Alice Anderson
THE MEDIA CENTER column focuses on building a new school and media
center. Says that it has been 14 years since the first of three
failed building referenda, and three years since passing of the
successful bond referendum. Describes the building progress in
phases: phase one deals with program planning, and notes that
teachers, administrators, architects, a board member, and community
members made up the committee; phase two describes concept planning,
including the media center's location; phase three details rough
blueprints; phase four relates that persistence, planning, and
participation paid off with the media center located in the middle
of the Y-shaped school; and phase five focuses on the final
infrastructure and technology planning. States that planning was a
mix of hard work, fun, frustration, and satisfaction.
