Lakewood Elementary school staff, parents and community members recently received a briefing on a series of planned improvements funded by a combination of the 2015 Interim Bridge Plan and 2015 Bond Program. Construction is underway on a 50,000 sq. ft. classroom addition that will add 10 classrooms, additional restrooms, music and art rooms, and computer labs. The addition will also feature a larger, more modern school library. When complete, the total project will house all classrooms in a single permanent building and eliminate all portables. Additional improvements will include new doors and windows and upgrades to the current building's roof and heating/air conditioning systems. A presentation featuring architect's renderings and the scope of planned improvements is available here.
