Construction Details

The first phase of renovations brought an amazing facelift to the school resulting in a fresh new aesthetic school wide for the start of the 17-18 school year. You can see a gallery of the remarkable transformation of our campus here. The most dramatic space was the metamorphosis of our front admin area to a new Kindergarten Classroom, directly adjacent to the Kindergarten Play area.

Here are some dates to be aware of this fall:

  • Mid-October: Restrooms completed.  Remove Temporary Restroom Trailer.
  • Mid-November: 2nd Grade moves into new classrooms.
  • Mid-November: Ms. Taylor’s 4th Grade and Spanish Classroom move to new classrooms.
  • December 1: Begin restoring St. James’ Hall to normal use.
  • January 1: Complete Nurse & P.E. Offices.
  • January 1: Blacktop returns to full playground use.
  • Mid-June through August: Begin 2nd Summer of Renovation Project

We’ve already made brand new spaces for:

  • A new Admission Office in the Preschool.
  • Father Koh’s personal office (by the Art Room).
  • A new Business Office (on the 2nd floor where the Music Room was previously).
  • A reception area by the parking lot gate.

For the time being we have some temporary office spaces:

  • Debbi David, Head of School is sharing offices with the Assistant Head of School
  • Kelly Basham, School Nurse and Community Security Manager Byron Zapata are sharing the Head of School Suite
  • P.E. Teachers, Nick DiPasquale and Chenelle Geoffroy-Lindsey and Spanish Teacher Nashelli Flores are in St. James’ Hall

On April 18, 2017 our architect and general contractors gave a presentation outlining the details of the upcoming renovations on campus. Feel free to watch the video above or see some of the details below.
