BJHS classes make move into new addition
Baldwin Junior High School is already making use of its new addition.
Classrooms and offices were moved into the new south wing of the school during spring break, according to Supt. James White, allowing the construction crew to begin its renovations on the east side, well ahead of schedule.
White said the science and practical arts classrooms and the offices made the switch during break to their new locations. Renovations on the east side of BJHS, which weren't supposed to begin until summer, are expected to be completed by May.
He said renovations include new ceilings and floors as well as removing several walls to make classes larger. The office area is also being redone to accommodate space for one-on-one time with students.
He said the students seemed pleased with their new facilities.
"They seem to think it's really a beautiful addition," he said. "They like it so far."
White said he's also satisfied with the way things have been taking shape at BJHS.
"I'm real pleased with the work of the construction company," he said. "The facility upgrades have been really well conceived. It's going to make a nice addition to our overall school facilities."
The public is invited to tour the new addition at BJHS. White said visitors can park in the new circle drive on the south side of the addition.
"They can visit with the principal and staff and take a tour of the building," he said.
