Renovation Underway at Asher Schools
School started and ended early last year so that extensive work could begin on the main school building.  The work was made possible by a 1.295 million bond issue that was approved by residents in February of 2005.  The building, built in 1929, is the oldest on campus.  The majority of the work focused on a new kitchen and cafeteria.  The current auditorium was combined with the new cafeteria.  The new area is centrally heated and cooled.  The restrooms, halls, and classrooms also were remodeled.  The outside also saw a facelift, with new covered walls.  This work followed the partial renovation of the 1940s gymnasium, completed in 2003.  See below for pictures.
 

Renovation Photo Gallery
Take a trip back to school.  Try not to trip over anything.  Click each thumbnail for a larger version.  You will have to use your browsers "back" button to return here.  Note:  The September 24th update will be the last as the building is mostly complete.  A special thanks to the Milburn's for letting me in the last few times.
