Lower School Construction
Now is an exciting time to be an Eagle. Check back for frequent updates.
As we wind down this busy week, and in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday break, we would like to use this month's "Construction Corner" to express gratitude to the great number of people who have been instrumental in moving our new Lower School initiative from an inspired vision to reality.
Project managers for Hill & Wilkinson brought classwork to life for ESD engineering students as they demonstrated the vital role engineering plays in our Lower School construction.
The structural beam signed by many Lower School students, parents, faculty, and staff on Friday, October 12 was installed on Saturday, October 27. While it will not be visible once the building is complete, a small plaque will remind community members of its placement.
What if students could apply what they're learning in the classroom to something in the real world? Third graders are doing just that! In this study, students are using their math and map reading skills to calculate the space of their future fourth-grade classrooms.
Many thanks to the many Lower School community members who came out to sign an actual beam for the new Lower School and cheer on our Eagles!
As the Lower School building's skeleton becomes visibly apparent, others continue behind the scene to ensure the best possible learning experience by focusing on FF&E.
