Moving & Decorating Classrooms...

Our goal is to move teams as close to each other as possible next year, which means there will be some rooms that will move next year. We want to try and let you know prior to the start of testing, so you know whether to remove items or simply cover them up. Even if you are NOT moving classrooms next year, please start to do a purge of your items before we move into the new building.


Good news: This will be our last year in this building, so feel free to get creative. If you would like to paint your rooms next year, or do something creative and innovative, feel free. Please give me a heads up of what you are planning before you start.
