Our classrooms for the last few years had been pretty run down, dirty and grimy. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went into them today. I knew they were going to be remodeled, but I didn’t expect much.

I’m thrilled to say they cleaned the floors, painted the walls, gave us all new furnishings. It’s like a whole new school.

Tiles in the halls and stairwells should be easy to clean

This still needs to be installed so it works

Note how white these walls are

Before the bathrooms were horrible. Trust me. I won’t go into detail, but they were. Now these are like the washrooms in a department store.
