Naperville Central hosted an open house Sunday so the Ancients could see what $87.7 million in renovations looks like. For me and mine, I'd say pretty darned cool.
Love the swoopy new entrance. At least, I think it's the new entrance. It's how we got in, anyway.
Of course, we ran into everyone we know. (After 23 years in the same town, I should hope so.)
Demo-ing the Interactive Kiosk. (I think I saw this on Grey's Anatomy.)
The cafeteria. Is this a cool space or what? I forgot to ask how the screen will be used.
All My Children? Real World? Animal Planet?
Mr. Dennison greets a member of the Class of 2026, who enthusiastically endorsed the chocolate chip cookies.
Curvilinear! Hip! Great aesthetic! Go, you.
Love that this portion of the original facade was saved.
Two views of the LRC. Glass, wood, steel -- great detail.
Bookcase endcaps. Awesome.
Just one of many classrooms with a dry erase wall, corkboard on top and a Smart Board, which projects whatever is on the teacher's laptop. Touch the board with a finger or pen, and the board interprets it as a mouse-click. No chalk dust here.
We were invited to try out the dry erase wall. Hopefully, we haven't set a bad precedent for you-know-who.
Yes, we wrote that together. And I must say, we have excellent penman, uh, markership.
Great view of the football field from the new Gymnastics gym.
Where would we be without education?
