The construction crews on the newly renovated Convent are still at work to finish its final steps. The students are eager to see what awaits them in this new building named: The Fred and Rosalie Ross Fine Arts and Activity Center.
Among the new features, the Convent will have a Mac Lab, for any classes that wish to use it, an Art studio, music class and computer rooms. The classes that will be moved will be Choir, Tech Design, Journalism, Broadcasting, Art and Business.
Teachers are thrilled with this move, like Coach Ashby or better known as the “IT guy.”
“I think it’s amazing! We need the space, plus I think it looks great. They did a great job over there,” said Ashby.
Another teacher thrilled with this move is Mrs. Hamerle, coach of the St. Pius X Pommies. Once the Art classes move from the main building, she gets to turn the one time Art classroom into her little studio for the dancers.
The Convent is will also have an event space on the top floor. It will host events like banquets and meetings that would’ve usually taken up gym space. Alumni and marketing guru, Ms. Petite, is really excited.
“To see a huge renovation like this is just mind blowing and amazing,” said Petite.
As one can tell, the Alumni current students and staff are very proud of their school and look forward to the building opening later on in February.
