Our construction supervisor sat down with one of our 6th graders for an interview about our current project.
Can you see how the classrooms are beginning to take shape? They hope to have everything under roof by the end of next week.
Soon the rooms will connect through a wide doorway. This will help as the different classrooms collaborate together.
