Elementary Schools Transform to Support Student Success

School Buildings and Classrooms thumbnail237125

Improving our buildings to enhance student learning has remained a priority here in the Carle Place School District as we follow a five-year capital projects plan. As we slowly approach the end of 2022, let’s look back at the amazing renovations that both Cherry Lane School and Rushmore Avenue School have undergone this year.

At Cherry Lane School, construction occurred during the summer months to complete the third and final phase of the school’s reconstruction project. This last phase included the replacement of the old office and corridor windows and the transformation of part of the building’s exterior. Crews worked tirelessly on the reconstruction and building façade replacement for nine classrooms and one resource room. With the final phase now completed, all the classrooms at Cherry Lane School are refurbished from floor to ceiling. Both students and staff are enjoying their fresh new learning environments.

At Rushmore Avenue School, phase six of construction also took place during the summer. Three classrooms received makeovers and are now updated spaces for students to learn and grow in. They feature fresh new paint on the walls, new flooring and more. The school also had two small classrooms added, using space from Rushmore Avenue’s existing computer lab. This has helped maximize instructional space for our students.

Construction did not stop there. The school’s main stairwell at the center of the building was renovated, and more improvement projects were completed on the second floor. The second-floor student restrooms were completely updated and now feature new wall tiles in our Carle Place colors. Part of the second-floor corridor was also updated.

The district plans to continue improving its buildings to not only benefit current students, but future students as well. On Wednesday, Dec. 7, a special vote will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the Carle Place Middle/High School, asking the community to vote on an expenditure from the district’s capital reserve fund to continue making basic infrastructure improvements. This money has already been set aside; as such, there is no tax impact associated with using these funds.

If approved, future projects would include the phase seven abatement and reconstruction at Rushmore Avenue School, consisting of second floor classrooms, resource room and related corridor and stairwell areas. Additional improvement projects would include the first-phase replacement of HVAC unit ventilators at Carle Place Middle/High School and several projects at Cherry Lane School – the replacement of the gymnasium roof, ceiling and lighting, along with the replacement of the school’s corridor ceiling and lighting.

Seventh grader Chase Birong is an avid Marvel fan and was interested in creating a Marvel display for the Carle Place Middle/High School Library. 

Since the first week of school, Chase has met with school librarian Mrs. Feit and has shared what Marvel movies the library should have available. He has been very passionate about informing her on how to complete the collection.

"As a new seventh grader, I saw this as an opportunity to allow this student and his friends to find a voice and a comfort level in the library by letting them know that the library is 'their library' and we will make every effort to hear their needs," said Mrs. Feit.

Chase's new Marvel display can now be found in the Carle Place Middle/High School Library for all to enjoy! Thank you, Chase!
