Various team members who have made the project possible, including the architect and contractor, were also in attendance.

The science labs received new amenities, including an eye wash station, sinks, energy efficient lighting, a fume hood, sustainable countertops, flooring, and a dishwasher for cleaning beakers. The classrooms are naturally lit due to increased window installation and original skylights that have been uncovered.

“We are eager to celebrate this event and move forward with the next project, a new, two-story library and classrooms building, which will also include a new chorus room and science labs,” Sam said. “The new project will continue to offer our students the tools they need to succeed in high school and beyond.”
