Renfroe Middle School’s old gymnasium is being converted into seven new classrooms and Principal Derrick Thomas recently provided parents with an update on the project.
“We are extremely excited to be adding much needed classroom space without affecting the footprint of our school,” he said.
The contractor, Turner Construction, says that they expect to finish up by the end of the school year.
“In the past few weeks, progress has been made on finishing walls and preparing for paint, installing ceilings and light fixtures, etc.,” the contractor said in its update to parents. “Shortly, exterior windows will arrive on site to close in the new window openings for each classroom.”
Construction lasts from 7 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm as needed.
