6SC St. Charles Post MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 1996 School It'! From page one "It's really neat," said Both Bying-, ton. "We'll be the first graduating class out of it. It's really a great job." Jennifer Ballman was especially impressed with the commons area, . where a wall of glass provides a pan-ormaic view of the countryside. "You can look out; it's nice and big," she said. "You can get lost in here." Mandy Roberts appreciated the architecture on the outside. The 150,000-square-foot white building with gray trim and blue roof is an eye-catcher from Highway 61. In the library, where there's a vaulted ceiling and more large windows, librarian Mary Jameson pointed with pride to the carpeted floor and slate tables. She said the room was large enough for two entire classes. She also likes its accessibility. At the old high school, she said, the library was in a building a block away. On a tour, Gaddis pointed to the bright red lockers lining the white .halls. The carpeting, deep blue with 's less crowded, there are individual lockers, more width to the corridors and a cafeteria commons. 19 DONNIE GADDIS, principal brown trim, will reduce noise when classes change. In the gymnasium, the team name, Trojans, is painted at the ends of the basketball court. Gaddis says that the bleachers will seat 1,360 people and that more seats can be added later on the gym mezzanine, which will be used now for wrestling and physical education. On the lower or ground level, there are four large locker rooms, two for boys and two for girls. The lockers are purple, and there are individual stall showers in both the boys' and girls' locker rooms. The private stalls were one of the suggestions from students, teachers and others in planning the school's layout. They also suggested placing the guidance offices near classrooms, and that was done. The vocational-agricultural building, about 100 feet south of the school, has three classrooms and an attached greenhouse that is still under construction. Until the new athletic field is completed, students will be taken by bus from the school at 1190 Old Cap Au Gris Street, to the old high school building's field, about Vh miles away and west of Highway 61 just off of Highway 47. That building will now become a middle school; sixth-grade students from Claude Brown Elementary will be transferred there. The old high school was so crowded that some classes were in trailers. The school district is picking up about 150 students a year. Gaddis expects about 1,100 students to walk into the building when classes start. That's about 65 more than last year and considerably more than the 785 students at the school eight years ago when he became principal. The new school cost about $13 million. About $12.5 million is coming from a bond issue approved by voters in April 1994. The rest is coming from the district's reserves. m With Temple-Inland Cedar Tex Acrylic Coated Siding - Needs N EVERYDAY FACTORY LOW PRICES Priming E fill Ul 10' x 10' x 8'6" OZARK DELUXE 10 1 10 1 10 BIG TIMBERLINE sft $899 8x12 WOODSMAN $719 NOTE: NEW PRICING CONCEPT ...
