A brand new building is currently being built for Howard Elementary School thanks to Eugene voters passing the school bond measure!
Howard Elementary School has been recognized as a leader in technology immersion and in helping students develop 21st century skills, so it is very exciting for us to take our innovative program into a new state-of-the-art facility.
Some exciting features in the new building include:
- Two courtyards with outdoor learning spaces
- Voice amplification systems in every classroom
- State-of-the-art interactive video projection systems in every classroom
- Natural lighting throughout the building
- Built-in school garden area
- A brand new track and field
- Building security features for emergency situations
- And many, many more features as well!
The image below is a mock-up of the school garden area for the new building, which will be irrigated by captured rainwater. We’re also hoping to add a chicken coop!
