Library would make a great middle school
Nowhere near big enough, genius
300 kids and dropping every year around 20 teachers YES you could make the library into a school might have to expand a little but you can make it work. Then you could turn the old school into a library.
The new Louisa West. Problem solved!
The library is almost 16,800 square feet that’s about 56 sq ft per kid
A solution I’m sure KAG and Jim Smith would love – just get rid of all the kids! Problem solved!
Didn’t say that Joey you must be in line for some of the construction work that comes with building a new school
or just not that bright
Kag why don’t you post your real name and stop hiding behind anonymous post. Big talker when nobody knows who you are. And get a life you comment on everything. Chicken.
Joey how you doing
