Sherman school construction project to begin in April

September 28, 2011
SHERMAN — A $2.5 million reconstruction project is set to begin in the first two weeks of April, according to the Sherman Central School Board of Education which met on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Seeing as how spring break occurs during the first two weeks of the month, it is a prime time to begin the reconstruction of hallway floors and walls, new parking lots, and an extensive project to begin at a later date involving the replacement of control valves on ventilators within the school. Among other renovations, plans for a new auditorium are in the making. With new windows and raised ceilings, the auditorium entranceway would have an enclosed roof and double set of doors. The cafeteria will also be revamped, along with the current science rooms. The entire project is hoped to be completed by Nov. 1, 2012.

In regards to the beginning of school, Principal Kaine Kelly said, “This was the smoothest start to the school year we’ve ever had.”

Kelly said the ease was due to a change in curriculum and a focus on core learning standards.

Kelly also mentioned a rise in student involvement such as the revival of the school play this spring. Over 100 students have expressed interest in participating in this year’s play, “The Wizard of Oz.” Class advisors are also revising the after-prom party, focusing on how responsibility matters.

Assistant football coach Aaron Jessey resigned last week and has been replaced by Cory Emory for the remainder of the 2011 football season.

Randy Bowlan was approved as the county school board’s legislative liaison.
