  NEW INNOVATION SPACE  
As our students were heading out the door to begin their summer break, construction crews were heading in to renovate our library and computer lab spaces! Elementary schools in our district were each given $500,000 as part of the 2016 Bond and Budget election. This August, students will come back to a reimagined library space with flexible seating, new technologies, and a bright, open-concept layout - along with a classroom dedicated to project-based learning. There is still a lot of work to be done, but here's how things are looking after some demo work:

We hope to have more information about the new program at the start of the new school year, but until then, please save those Box Tops and click here for more details. Thanks!
