Steel goes up for STEM Lab expansion

Phase 1 of the expansion of STEM Lab in Northglenn took shape in October as the steel frame for the 25,000 square-foot east wing addition came together.

STEM students got to play a role in the work as students signed their names to an I-beam to be placed as part of the steel structure for the new elementary wing.

Flurry of activity as Thunder Vista P-8 construction passes 5-month mark

Work is literally happening at all levels of the new Thunder Vista P-8 in Broomfield as construction on the school passes the 5-month construction mark.

On a recent sunny October day at the construction site, ironworkers straddled steel beams at the top of the three-story building as dirt movers far below began the process to backfill the school’s massive foundation walls. Inside the school, framers and dry wall workers have helped the school’s rooms began to take shape while HVAC contractors have started uncoil the massive ductwork system that will snake, mostly unseen, throughout the building.


Attendance boundary open houses draw community input

Parents provided their input on proposed attendance boundaries for the new Thunder Vista P-8 under construction in Broomfield. More than 100 people attended three boundary open houses held in early October.

The open houses gave parents the opportunity to review and ask questions about three proposed elementary attendance boundaries and two middle school boundaries.

Arapahoe Ridge, Cotton Creek expansions in final phases of design

Bond-funded expansion projects at two Westminster elementary schools are in the final phases of the design process. Arapahoe Ridge Elementary is receiving a 12-classroom expansion and Cotton Creek Elementary is adding an eight-classroom wing.

The expansions will allow both schools to move students out of modular classrooms. Arapahoe Ridge will also add an Early Childhood Education program. The schools will also receive substantial improvements to the existing buildings.
