Centennial Middle School starts the school year showcasing multiple improvements
Posted by Kassie Swenson on 9/9/2021
This week we’ve started to welcome students back into our classrooms. Our latest bond project spotlight is Centennial Middle School (CMS) where many improvements were made over the summer, thanks to voters’ support of the 2020 bond.
Recently completed projects at CMS include roofing repairs, corridor updates, floor tile removal and the polishing of concrete floors, new paint on upper walls and doors, new wainscot, ceiling repairs, walk off mat installations, and mechanical improvements. All three gym floors were completely stripped, sanded, sealed, and striped due to their age.
Due to deterioration that comes with age, the track and field event pads were removed down to asphalt and replaced with modern cushioned rubber surfacing, with striping completed last Spring. It is a full 8-lane track. Field event areas were also resurfaced. Storm drainage was also improved around the track and at the center of the field to minimize standing water.
Over the next year, CMS will also receive science lab and media center renovations, locker room updates, improved safety and security, and more mechanical and lighting enhancements.
These bond projects are creating much-needed improvements at our schools, which allows us to continue prioritizing the education, safety, and well-being of our students. It’s so heartening to see transformation take place across the district. Thanks again, voters, for making this possible for our school district and most importantly, for our students!
