A Fresh Start to the New Year

Students returning to Prospect for the 2015-2016 school year walked into a refreshed and improved school building. 

Students and staff began getting excited about the updates coming as renovations began in the gym before let out.  The gym has been revitalized with walls painted yellow to tie in with the new colorful floor that is yellow, red, and blue.  Additionally, red plastic bleachers spell out the word “CUBS” in blue when they are pushed against the wall, which gives the gym an updated look. 

The colorful floors continue into the main building where most of the tiles are white, but squares throughout the halls are made with lime green, orange, yellow, purple, teal, blue, and red tiles! 

In the nineteen classrooms that were renovated you will find a uniform look with white tile floors, light wooden cabinets and cubbies, and an interactive board affixed to the wall.

The media center was completely renovated starting with new carpet and freshly painted walls.  Two accent walls painted in green and blue really liven up the media center!  New shelving and a circulation desk were purchased for the media center giving it the feeling of a “media center of tomorrow”. 

Teachers and students are enjoying the renovations and updates that give Prospect an exciting feeling as the 2015-2016 school year begins.
