Welcome to Newell-Fonda

Welcome back for the 2012-13 school year! It has been a great start back and will be a year marked with many changes. The first change has already taken place with the beginning of demolotion of the shop building.
This will make room for the 13 classroom addition and shop. The second phase of the project will be a gymnasium, media center, and commons space off of the gym. The projected occupancy of all of the projects will be August 2014. This will be a year of many changes and challenges, but we know the end product is what we need to keep in mind.

 As construction begins, please be respectful of the construction zone, we will keep our website up-to-date with pictures of what is going on. Because the shell is a precast building, meaning that they are made of poured concrete and assembled in sections, we will not see a lot of substantial building until December. With the site now cleared, let the building begin!

The picture to the right is a view from the east parking lot looking west. This is the former site of the shop and playground.

 In phase II, the south tower, seen in the background, will also be demolished to make room for the new practice gymnasium and media center. Destination 2014 is in full swing!
