“It’s like a home away from home,” said one fourth grader, referring to her new classroom space at Clark Elementary.
Fourth grade classroom renovations at Clark Elementary School were completed this fall as the first project in a division-wide plan to modernize facilities. The project, completed by VMDO Architects, included upgrades to classroom furniture, lighting, and flooring, along with new cubbies, library nooks, and shelving.
“We are so grateful to the City of Charlottesville for supporting these efforts to upgrade our schools,” said assistant superintendent Kim Powell. “As we turn our attention to the next phase of design at Jackson-Via Elementary, we are confident that next year’s project will be just a strong and impactful.”
Now that the Clark students have settled in, here is what some of them had to say about their new learning spaces.
