The Nickel Tour

On Saturday (a really cold and blustery day), we got our first look at the new school.  Our girl (and the rest of the students) got a tour on the last day of school before Christmas break.  She was really excited and full of details when she got home, so I was anxious to see it!  The 2013-14 school year was to have started in the new building, but there were some hold-ups, so the transition had to wait until after Christmas break.  School was due to start tomorrow, but is actually delayed another day due to the extremely low temperatures that are headed our way.  WhenEVER it starts -- our daughter is actually excited to go back!

This post might not be appealing to many of you, but if you like to look at things that are shiny and new, well... here you go!

The building spans quite a length of space along the main road.  Further down in the post, you'll see the actual footprint of the school.  There are junior-high and  senior-high wings, both two stories.

I corralled a few photos together for a panoramic effect to give you an idea of the overall look.

 Our girl -- getting excited for the first day!

~The High School Gym~

There are many of these display cases in the "common" areas of the school,
and they are already filled with students' artwork!

Everything, shiny and new... how exciting!

Study tables in the hallways outside classrooms... handy.

Large monitors all through the hallways!

Love the big windows!  L-I-G-H-T!!

Thanks for stopping by to take the "Nickel Tour" with me!


  1. Beautiful! I don't think I would've been able to keep myself from breaking into "We're All In This Together" and dancing down the halls though. Hehehe!

  2. It looks wonderful! I can see why she is excited about it. And I think those "study tables" in the hallways will be more like "visiting tables," LOL.

  3. Even though I have not yet visited the new jr high/high school in my community (other than the track and soccer field), I was very happy to take the tour. It sounds wonderful and looks great. May your daughter get an amazing education and enjoy her time there.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
