SITE WORK AND CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS

We have begun!  The foundation is being dug in and formed as of the last week of March.  Progress is going well and the weather is cooperating.  Drive by the property on Pioneer Road and take a look.  Below is an architectural rendering of what the school building will look like.
