Summer bond projects done; many more to come
Bond projects ranging from critical safety enhancements to much-needed mechanical, electrical and plumbing replacements were completed at one preschool, 10 elementary schools, one middle school, four high schools and Legacy Stadium during the summer of 2013, the first phase of the 2012 bond issue, approved by Cherry Creek voters last November.

“Promises made, promises kept,” said Sheila Graham, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Support Services, during a presentation to the Board of Education on bond project progress during the board’s regular meeting on Sept. 9. Graham also reported that all projects to date have been completed on time and on or under budget. View Graham's presentation here.

The well-worn carpeting at Dakota Valley Elementary was replaced, making the building cleaner, quieter and more comfortable for students and staff. At Sagebrush Elementary, the aging roof was replaced and the parking lot and driveways were repaved. The chiller unit at Greenwood Elementary was replaced, to keep the school cool and comfortable even on hot, late summer days.

At Thunder Ridge Middle School, the public address system, which is an essential communications tool, especially in emergency situations, was upgraded. Students returning to Cherry Creek and Eaglecrest high schools this fall noticed many improvements; new carpeting in the East and West buildings and new landscaping at Creek, and renovations to the media production classrooms, college and career center and main office at Eaglecrest. Major mechanical upgrades and electrical and plumbing replacements made at Eaglecrest are less visible, but just as important as the renovations.

Also during the summer, design work was completed for additions to Cherokee Trail and Grandview high schools, where enrollment exceeds capacity. Construction of those additions, and work on many additional bond projects at schools across the district, will begin in 2014 and continue through the summer of 2015.
