The end is in “site!”

The trees are planted and grass is growing! The project punch list is getting smaller, and we can expect to see the photovoltaic panels being installed on the sloped roofs in the next few weeks. Stay tuned – more about the PV system after the December 14th SBC meeting! The November photo gallery is here and the slide deck from the last meeting is here.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony/Time Capsule Photos

We have lots of photos from the Ribbon Cutting ceremony! Click here to check out the gallery. And click here to watch the SBC slide show.

On behalf of the School Building Committee, we are so grateful to our faculty, students, administrative team, custodians, technology gurus, and the project team for working so hard to get the building ready for the Ribbon Cutting and tours. Thank you Becky McFall, Buck Creel, Rob Ford, and Brandon Kelly for leading the tours and to the students and faculty throughout the building providing additional information. And a big thank you to the students and families of Cantibile for providing such beautiful music during the tours on Saturday. It was great to see so many people in the school on both Friday and Saturday!

Ribbon Cutting!

Thank you to everyone who came to the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in person or watched it on line. It was great to see so many members of the community and to share this moment with our project team, residents, students, and current and former faculty! Thank you, too, to Rep. Tom Stanley (Lincoln’s current state representative) and Rep. Carmine Gentile (our incoming Precinct 1 state representative) for taking time to attend the event.

Couldn’t see the school today? The school will be open to the public tomorrow morning from 9:00am – 11:00am! No need to RSVP – simply show up and stroll through the building. The time capsules are still set up (see the letter below!) and there will be people on hand to share information.

To see the SBC slide show that was playing during the event, click here.

The group’s Music Director is Rebecca Lee. Please come to hear these fabulous musicians!

Letting the Grass Grow

The landscaping team is putting the finishing touches on the center field and the grassy areas around the school. In this image you can see new grass along the south end of the building and one of the many newly planted trees. We thank our students and the community for being patient with this part of the process. Someday the ropes will come down and we can all roam freely! Click on the October photo gallery to see more photos.

Highlights from this past Wednesday’s SBC meeting:

  • Lots of grading and seeding all around the campus, including restoration of the center field!
  • The end-of-project “punch list”, which had over 500 items in mid September, now stands at about 175. So many final details to take care of! Thank you to the entire team for getting them done.
