UPDATE 2/22/2017: Work is well underway in the new addition. Crews are focusing on the new section that will connect the gym area to the classrooms on the northwest portion of the building. This section will contain a new industrial tech room, as well as bathrooms and a new staff room. At the front of the building, where the staff room used to be, there is also a lot of work happening. Renovations are underway to the guidance office.
1/11/2017: Students are now using portions of the new addition at Pleasant Valley Junior High. Over Winter Break, a portion of the new addition opened. The new arrangement isn’t permanent. Instead, students and staff are using the new classrooms as a holding place until the rest of the building can be renovated. For example, the guidance department is being renovated, so they’ve moved into some of the new classrooms. Same goes for some of the computer labs.
When construction is complete at PVJH, there will be eight new classrooms, a new industrial tech room and a multi-purpose wellness room. There will also be a newly renovated Orchestra room, guidance area, and kitchen.
