Today the balance of the exterior courtyard was poured. In addition, the concrete wall just to the west of the church compressor was taken down. In the courtyard more of the lime soil has been removed, and the Astroturf is being completed. The crew will be putting in the columns and the wrought iron fence tomorrow morning on the west side.
The Class of 2019 had a chance to see the new school and visit their new classroom.
They shared their first impressions:
When I walked through the magnificent doors of our brand new school, I was filled with joy and overwhelmed with excitement. - Ava
I love all the creativity that went into the school from whole walls being white boards to having different wings for the students. I also love the safety. - Dylan
When I walked into the new school I was overwhelmed with excitement, it felt like a dream. I can’t wait to move in. - Emily
My first impression of the new school was that it looked gorgeous, spacious, and very modern. - Ty
The new school expresses how the community of St. Ignatius strives to achieve goals that help and inspire the students. - Molly
There were only about 20 people working on the site today, framing the amphitheater seating and weatherproofing the trellis columns. Sidewalks will be poured and grading work will start on the east side on Wednesday and the amphitheater seating will start on Thursday.
Happy New Year!
8 hours of rain Sunday night proved no challenge to the new grounds; there were no leaks! There will be lots going on this week. The interior courtyard concrete will be poured Wednesday.
