The Media Center Update Edition

Big Changes to Media Center Underway
On December 23, our Media Center began its transformation and facelift. Periodically, I will offer some pictures to document the progress toward a new and improved learning space for our students. The project will be completed this summer, ready for use by August 14.

Before demolition (December 23)

Removing the paneling (January 10)

Some of the interior walls have been removed (January 20)
View is from the Tutoring Center, looking into Media Center Room 1 (blue carpet). No wall!
And here is a video of what the finished product will look like, more or less:

Insider Tip for Parents:
Let them fail. It’s an inevitable part of life that we all must learn to deal with. So, with that, let them struggle in dealing with that failure as well. Stepping in too soon while they deal with that failure is just as bad as stepping in when you see them start to fail.

Ask the Principal
