It’s out with the old to make room for the new.
Work is underway at Sun City Elementary to remove some of the transportable buildings (or T-buildings) from campus in preparation for the construction of a brand new classroom wing. The new wing will have 10 designated classrooms with an option to add two more rooms, giving them a total of 12 new classrooms.
Sun City Elementary was identified as a school in need of a new classroom wing because they have more T-buildings than any other elementary school in the parish. They currently have 11 classrooms set up in multiple buildings.
The south Bossier school was long overdue for a new classroom wing, but the wait is finally over. Principal Kim Tuminello previously told the Press-Tribune that you won’t find anyone more excited about a classroom wing than you will at Sun City.
“We are just thrilled,” she said. “We appreciate the school board…that they saw this as a need.”
Because the new wing will be constructed between the main building and the playground, administrators have designated a safe area away from the worksite for students to go during outside recess and P.E. The construction area will also be fenced off while the wing is being completed.
