The South Addition is getting closer and closer to completion! The South Entrance glasswork, called “the storefront” in construction terms, has been installed along with the other windows. Additionally, lighting and custom wood ceiling work has been completed and tile flooring has been installed in the upper and lower lobbies. Walls are now being finished including custom tile accents. It is also exciting to see the Book Nook take shape at the base of the staircase. Up next inside: completing the interior finishes including door and window trim, installing carpet and wood flooring in the side-rooms, installing the Terrace flooring and rail, and finally, painting. Work outdoors includes preparing for the eventual exit from the addition to the playground and the bioretention structures.
As we reach the end of 2023, after 5 years of fundraising with a pandemic wedged in the middle, we are closing active fundraising for the Honor our Heritage Build our Future Campaign. Over 500 member families have contributed to support this project and we are hoping to expand that number as much as possible before the year-end. If you have yet to support the campaign, please consider making a multi-year pledge or a donation to join this collective effort. All pledges or donations dated before the end of the year will be acknowledged on our donor wall, which will be prominently displayed in the South Addition.
