Concrete is Only the Foundation!

It is hard to believe that two years has passed so quickly @LWTHS! Watching portable city and the student population grow and develop has been incredibly exciting....and now we are just a couple of short months away from the opening of the new high school building (phase 1 of a three-phase construction project)! All of the windows are in and the building has been painted since this picture was taken in early May.

The 'insides' are well on their way to completion, as well!

And as we prepare for the next phase of construction of the Career Center buildings, I'm constantly reminded that the concrete buildings are only the mere foundation of what our school is all about - it's mostly about the people (the students, the teachers, and the staff) and the process of learning (about academic subjects, technical applications, and ourselves and each other). So, thanks to all of you who contribute to our unique environment!

  • Funny that you posted this today - I'm prepping my own update about both the construction and the demolition (for phase two). It's truly very exciting, and both students and staff who get to be here for it are experiencing something many never get to be part of.

    Yet, as you say, it's just the foundation. It's the people inside the buildings that make the school what it truly is. I can't speak for others, but for myself, this whole process of building new, and demolishing the old, is an opportunity for us to (re)invent ourselves, to define what we want to be, and how we want to get there. Accomplishing that physically with the buildings is symbolic of our opportunity to do that, even more meaningfully, as a community of learners.
