For Two Frenship Schools: New Year, New Look

Two Frenship elementary campuses were renovated during the summer with new walls and flooring throughout the buildings. As part of the 2014 bond project list, attention was turned to the North Ridge and Westwind campuses.

The walls, which were once a dark brown wood paneling, didn’t allow for much natural light in the hallways. With the enhancements this summer, they now have a refreshed look and feel. The new plastic laminate wall panels are shades of light gray and blue allowing for a much brighter, more open space. The color scheme and material used are the same as the walls of Frenship’s newest elementary campus, Upland Heights.

The decision was made to perform the interior renovations to these two campuses to ensure facility equity. Goals for the future are for renovations to be made to more elementary schools to the newest color scheme and material. The LVT flooring that was used in the renovations will help with sound absorption and has minimal maintenance cost which will benefit the district.

“We were already proud of our school,” said Todd Newberry, Westwind Elementary Principal. “The renovations instill that much more pride in our campus. New look – new attitude.”

North Ridge and Westwind students will begin to enjoy the new look and feel of their campuses on the first day of school on August 20.
