Our new building!

Thank you to all the people who helped build the new elementary school this summer. Many hands made this project happen, and without all your help we would not be anywhere near done.   Since the kick-off last spring at Puddletown Pride, our community has stepped up to make our new elementary school a reality.

A special thanks to a few super volunteers.  Sandy Mills’ experience and knowledge were invaluable assets. His connections found us amazing sub-contractors and he helped chisel away at the mountain of labor.  EddieParker came so many times and cheerfully took on parts of the job that would be put in the category of “least fun”.  Crystal Schenk and Shelby Davis made so much work just disappear.  Often we would come back and magically the fence would be  removed or the floors patched or the soffits vented.  David Perry was such a help as well, especially when we would come back to find plumbing fixtures installed, door hardware taken care of, or entire stairwells demolished.

 

We are touched by all the people who came by to help out. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Coming soon: plants and a sign!!

Progress on Puddletown’s new elementary building

Sam and crew have been working long and hard to tear down, re-build, and seismically retrofit the building that will soon be Puddletown’s home for the Douglas Fir (lower elementary) and Madrone (upper elementary) classrooms. Here are some photos of the work in progress, due to be complete in the fall of 2018:
