Construction at the secondary site continues as expected, and we've been working closely with our architect to finalize selections and colors for the gym floor, cabinetry, paint, ceramic tile, and carpet. The interior burnished block walls have been completed and we'll begin pouring floors at the end of the week. You may have noticed a crane lifting materials to the top of the gymnasium roof, which will be insulated next week. We've scheduled Wednesday,
Sept. 26, to install the final precast panels that will enclose the west end of the gym. If you recall, we intentionally left two panels out in order to haul equipment and materials into place. The construction project has been going very well and we're extremely pleased with the progress.
Please stop in for a visit with your questions and comments, and be sure to exercise caution when you're in the proximity of the construction zone.
