There will be green and white balloons marking the meeting area. We have the principal and the building and grounds director to guide us and answer any questions that we may have.
There were about 50 of us touring the school. The school personnel did a fine job guiding us about, though there was some discussion on what was new construction and what was not. "I know I had trigonometry with Mr. Thomas in this room!"
