Brackett's Representative to the Gibbs School Parent/Teacher Advisory Committee is Announced

Dear Parents,      gibbs plan
Last week, I was notified by Dr. Bodie that I will be the Brackett representative to the Gibbs School Parent/Teacher Advisory Committee.

Also last week, Dr. Bodie and the architects for the project presented their plans for the Gibbs School. I saw a number of Brackett parents at the meeting but for those of you who were unable to attend here are two resources to check out:

Wicked Local article about the meeting. These are the slides from the presentation (photos and schematics - worth checking out).

The intent is to finalize the design in the coming weeks so that the construction work can go out to bid. Renovations will begin early this summer and will continue throughout next year. At this point, getting the building plans ready has been the top priority and more conversations, decisions and communication will be forthcoming about some of the logistics of splitting our middle school between two campuses (band/orchestra, busing, after school, etc).

I am hopeful that I can be a conduit for your questions and concerns as this renovation gets underway and as they begin the planning process opening Gibbs School for 6th graders in the Fall of 2018.
