A seven-foot hoist beam soon to be placed in Monterey Community School will be on display in Monterey's new south parking lot on Friday, Feb. 12, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. New and returning Monterey families are invited to stop by and sign the beam. Students will also be able to vote for the school’s new mascot. Please be sure to wear a mask or face covering, practice social distancing, and observe other health and safety measures as we mark this special moment in Monterey history!
Monterey will reopen in August. The Monterey team is looking forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new families. Seats are available in all grades K-8, but are filling up fast! Enroll today!
The structural framing for the addition at Monterey Community School is now enclosed!
The walls on the west side of the building give shape to the new gymnasium and stage.
With the parking lot completed, crews now turn their attention to pouring concrete for the new playground and outdoor classroom.
Inside the building, work continues on the classrooms, library, and elevator shaft. After weeks of structural reinforcement to the building, crews are now working on completing drywall installation and adding finishes to the upstairs cafeteria.
Yesterday at the second virtual Construction Advisory Meeting (CAM), our community got a glimpse at the exciting new building plans for Valley View PK-8!
When collaborating on the new school building, The Neenan Company and Mapleton Public Schools focused on supporting Project-Based Learning (PBL), a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects.
Traditional spaces, like the cafeteria and library, were designed to function beyond their intended purposes and provide flexibility for different uses.
Designers implemented public breakout areas throughout the school, called immersion studios. The additional spaces encourage small group collaboration, creativity, and flexible teaching spaces beyond the classroom.
When designing the exterior, architects blended contemporary and residential styles to fit the feel of the surrounding residential houses.
The front entrance, bus loop, and parking lot will move to the east side on Fox Way to safely disperse traffic and students away from W. 70th Ave.
