The History[edit]

In mid-2007 the basement was converted into an expanded lunchroom, a music room was created, computer "lab", art room and extra storage space (storage courtesy of Eagle Scout of Troop 17) all were made. In 2016 the school built a STEM Lab and new music room as well. In 2015, 2016, and 2017, the school executed their "Read-a-Thon" that was led by the librarian, Michelle Banaszak; students would get to stay for the night at the school. Also in 2005 and 2014, the school won the annual blue ribbon award.[citation needed] In 2016 the school finished the STEM wing.
