On the second floor there will be social studies.
On the third floor there will be science with 12 new science labs. Having additional science labs and new fine arts facilities has been needed for a long time.
Jeanette Hencken said, her current “class room holds 22 students in a very small room and has no access to electricity or gas for Bunsen burners.” For a class like chemistry where a flame is necessary this poses a problem.
The band and choir room have faced issues as well with what the current building has to offer.
The facilities are too small to fit a program our size said Kevin Cole. Also the ceiling in the band and choir room leaks.
Cole said the band room has become sort of a “courtyard within the department – a courtyard full of rotten, falling tiles and carpet.”
The new classrooms might have soft seating in each room. In the designs cutouts in the hallway give room for tables and seating so classrooms can have people do group work in the hallways comfortably.
The Little Theatre will be removed too. The Little Theatre will take its rightful place by the auditorium.
When the construction is completed, the schools arrangement of classes will be completely changed. If construction goes as planed the new wing of the school should be open in two years time.
In the future there is a possibility of the courtyard getting a dome over it so that it can be used all year around. During the winter everyone is crammed into the cafeteria, and this will be a solution to this problem. The dome will be able to be lighted too said Clark.
