Tuesday was the last day for students, but it took me until Thursday afternoon to pack up my room. Literally pack! Everything in every classroom had to be packed, labeled, put on pallets, and shrink-wrapped. It will spend the summer in storage while our new building is completed.
Our new building is under construction on the playground in front of our old buildings. It was supposed to be finished last November, but various delays prevented that. Now we are hoping it will be ready for us when teachers report August 11.
Here's what it looks like now.
