Construction is (Almost) Complete!

The fences surrounding the Performing Arts Center were removed on Thursday May 5, and the Center hosted its first performance on May 12.  By the start of the school year in August 2016, the PAC should be ready for the students to enjoy!

The official opening is scheduled for Saturday, October 1.  We will post more information here as it becomes available.

 

 

Construction Update

On January 20, Jeff Willner, Kathleen Woods and Holly Ward were given a tour of the new Performing Arts Center.  A lot of progress has been made since the last photos were posted in November.  The teachers are ecstatic about the new building.  They can’t wait to move in!  Although the “official” opening is scheduled for October, the building may be ready to be occupied by the end of April!

As we walked around and asked questions, we realized that the list of furniture and equipment that is needed is longer and more expensive than we first estimated.  For one thing, the facility is so much larger than our current buildings, that everything we bring to it will also need to be larger.  And we also noted items that we hadn’t thought of before.

So the need for fundraising has grown in amount and increased in urgency.  Many items on the lists need to be ordered in advance, and while the contractors are still around to install them.  So please, if you haven’t yet purchased a seat but you intend to, please do so soon.  Donations of any size are greatly appreciated!

Enjoy the photos.
