Last Days on the Modular Campus

Last Days on the Modular Campus

It’s been a little over five years since we arrived in the trailers–known as a modular campus–that we’ve called home. We were one of many schools that utilized the non-descript buildings as schoolhouses until new ones could be constructed.

That first year was spent trying to make the sterile white building look like a school for our Pre-K through 6 graders who were with us in September 2007. Through the years, we’ve had several groups of volunteers to come by and put some color and even a playground up for our Warriors. Our artists-in-residence (under the direction of art teacher Mr. Britt) have also added color to our campus with their projects.

The trailers began to show their age, just as the new building was going up! We began to earnestly prepare to move almost as soon as the 2012-2013 school year began. Packing became our second job. Although the move was just across the parking lot, bringing more than 20 plus classrooms, textbooks, tricycles, band instruments (including a pair of kettle drums), and a 7500-book library etc., was a daunting task. Students left the modular campus on Friday, October 12th for the last time. Faculty spent the next week packing and setting up in their new work spaces in the new facility.

We broke ground for the new facility on a cold December morning in 2010. This December will find us in our new state-of-the-art school. What a difference two years can make!
