Update: April 11, 2014

Another week and and another major milestone for the Jefferson-Houston School of the Future! We now have a gym floor and the last major concrete pour for the new building is complete. The masonry work is picking up speed with the improved weather and inside the crews are turning classroom spaces from ideas and drawings into beautiful rooms with bay windows.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Community Engagement Committee meeting on Monday and please let us know if you would like to join the committee to plan the grand opening celebration.

This is the first of several reminders of the last Quarterly Community Meeting before we open the new school. The meeting will be on Monday, May 5 at 7 p.m. in the multi-purpose room and the agenda will include the following:

  1. Project update
  2. Packing and moving procedures
  3. Summer parking and access to the pool
  4. Designing the teaching garden
  5. Planning the grand opening
