Campbellsville Elementary School preschool students were the first to use the school's new cafeteria when it opened on Thursday, January 5, 2017
The cafeteria was recently completed as part of ongoing renovations at the school.
The CES project is contracted to be completed by Monday, January 16, 2017, but officials say they hope to be finished before that date.
New restrooms were completed at the school and opened, and work has been completed on the new bell tower in the front of the school.
Front office suites have been completed, and are now in use.
Landscaping has been completed outside the new entrances to the building, and finishing touches are being made to the front entrance. As such, all students and parents should now enter the building through the main entrance.
Four new classrooms built as part of the renovation project have been in use for the entire 2016-2017 school year.
Ground was broken for the project in a special ceremony last March, and contractors began working on the construction full time after the 2015-2016 school year ended last May.
The project was estimated at being completed in 10 months. Interruption to instruction has been kept at a minimum.
There will be a ceremony in coming weeks to celebrate the completion of the project.
Renovations planned at CES include the addition of four new classrooms, a new HVAC unit, a fire suppression system, interior finishes, new kitchen and cafeteria, new restrooms, renovation of existing classrooms, a new playground for preschool students and work to administrative suites, parking areas and the front facade.
Once renovations are complete at CES, and then later at CMS, all fourth- and fifth-grade students will be housed at CES, making it a more traditional elementary school, and the CMS building will better suit the needs of a middle school.
The CES project will cost about $9.7 million.
N3D Group is the architect for the project, and Codell Construction is construction manager.
