Welcome back

My assignment this morning was a year in the making. As students wandered the halls looking for their classrooms they made history. They were the first group to have class in Tracy High’s new classroom building.

The still unfinished building opened its bottom floor of 12 math classrooms. There was no ribbon cutting, no speeches, just students trying to navigate their way through the corridors often stopping to ask a faculty member where their room was. A teacher passing by remarked that crossing the concrete walkway to the new classroom building seemed as if you were entering a whole new campus.

The official completion is still a month or two away but I couldn’t help but impressed with the new building. From it high tech classrooms to its polished hallways it is a site for sore eyes on the old campus.

For a look at how the new building came to be look here.

The slideshow was brilliant, Glenn. I'm so glad you were able to capture the whole process. It's hard to imagine how different the campus must feel with the new building open to students...

Thanks for the photo, by the way =) Good luck with the solo hike coming up!
