First Day of School

Apologies – there was a glitch and this post did not go up when it was supposed to but here it is!

September 7

Today was the first day of school and I had the opportunity to wander around to get some photos. It was great to see how far the school had come along in such a short period of time. Miraculous, really! This is a testament to BP’s commitment to our community.

The students were touring their new school and the excitement on their faces said it all. Their excitement may have even extended beyond those the gorgeous lockers.. To quote Santa on the M&Ms commercials, “They do exist..” and in great colors as well: blue, teal, yellow and red.

All of the classrooms were ready and well equipped with new desks, paint, etc. The music room has an awesome old piano in it and the science labs have cabinets filled with bakers and supplies. There is still work to do on those so look for updates.

For the cafeteria, cafe style tables were chosen over the standard long tables and benches to better reflect BPs philosophy on community. The kitchen is not yet approved for heating up food but is in full swing to serve Red Rabbit’s prepared cold foods.

Few additional perks to note
– Filtered water bottle fountains!
– Air Conditioning
– Outdoor recreational area on part of the lot

Let the Renovations Begin!!!

    Here are some important numbers to consider..

$1.5 million
This is the cost of the renovations just to get us ready for September! BP has been diligently fundraising and saving for this big moment and it will be awesome. A few insights into the renovation include proper art rooms with cabinets and wet sinks, wifi, proper athletic locker rooms and an open reception area, representative of the open spirit of Brooklyn Prospect.

This is the amount already raised for the science labs via Indiegogo. If you have not seen this yet, check out the fundraiser page here.

Renovations are in full swing over at Brooklyn Prospect – demolition has begun! They expect demolition to be complete this week and the renovations will continue throughout the summer..
