What a difference a few weeks can make! Thanks to everyone who helped with Phase One of the big school move. Everything we need for the move to Southwest High School is stored in the gym, and everything being left behind is packed away in the south building. Workers have been on site since right after Memorial Day: taking down walls, removing windows, floors and stairs, and tuckpointing the stone on the exterior of the school building. We are right on schedule! Demolition will continue through June.
