SOUTH GLENDALE— Enter Lynn Marso's office and see what's in store for Roosevelt Middle School next year and beyond.
A map of the school grounds consumes much of the principal's shelf space, and she's quick to point out how renovations beginning this summer will open the grounds to more sports and consolidate classrooms on the eastern half of campus.
That's just for the 2010-11 school year. Before Open House in spring 2012, a new, two-story classroom building will open, and the campus's 16 bungalows will be a fading memory, Marso said.
"The bungalows are old and they need a lot maintenance, which can be difficult," she said. "It's been a long time coming. It's needed and we're very excited about the project and what it will bring to the school and the community."
New athletic space, including more field space and new basketball courts, will open before March 2011. There will also be a restroom facility for the community and a track made of crushed gravel, Marso said.
