We are getting a new school!
Our current school is undergoing major demolition during the early construction phase.
On the last day of school in June, we had a ground breaking ceremony.
The superintendent of our school district, Dr. Kimball, came and with help from some students, Mrs. Hovis, and Mr. Anderson the first hole was dug.
Last spring, I had to pack up the library because we were moving into a new space on campus.
We liked our library! It was big and spacious with lots of space and shelves for our books.
We even had room for a comfy couch for reading!
However, the location of the library and the gym was in the way of building the new school, so we had to move. During the summer while all the students and staff were gone, the school became a construction zone. Fences were put up, new driveways were paved and our school was reconfigured. A few days ago, the outside hallway to the library still looked relatively normal.
Then demolition started!
The following gallery of photos show how the process proceeded. The bright yellow door was the entrance to the library. The huge yellow tractor seemed like a gigantic dinosaur was eating the library!
What do you think of the demolition?
Were you sad to see the library go?
Have you ever seen your school torn down?
