My, what a difference a month makes! In February, the elementary building looked like this, and now, it’s even closer to completion. Outside, concrete walkways have been laid, siding is up, sod is being rolled out and is greening up nicely, paint colors have been chosen, and the whole campus is a lot less muddy.
All around, the building is looking a lot closer to how it will look once it is finished.
Since taking these photos, the above playing field has become a lot more green as sod has been rolled out! Progress is moving so quickly, it’s hard to keep photos current!
Inside, the clean white walls go so well with the warm wood tones of the flooring and cabinets.
Modern lighting hangs from vaulted ceilings and compliments the natural light, high windows, and open floor plans in each classroom. Above: Ms. Megan’s Lower Elementary classroom, located on the east side of the building, facing the future playing fields and pool/pool house.
Below: the common room, which will hold couches and chairs and plenty of books.

Above: the Upper Elementary classroom, which is located in the center of the building and has north-facing windows. Directress Ms. Rebecca is hoping for a moveable chicken coop right outside the windows!

Yes, Villa di Maria now has its very own cherry red fire hydrant!
The new pool house and larger area around the pool. The fencing situation will be changing to allow access to bathrooms without entering the main pool area. This will make bathroom trips much easier for Camp Pegnita and for VdM students using the playing field during the school year.
The pavilion is also coming along nicely!
The construction crew is optimistic, eager, and enthusiastic about getting these kids into their new building. We are equally excited to see how it all looks in a month!
