Oak Knoll’s renovated campus shines at Back-to-School night

by Linda Hubbard on August 31, 2010

School’s been in session for a week, but Oak Knoll chose this evening’s Back-to-School night for the ribbon cutting ceremony to officially unveil its renovated campus. Following similar ceremonies at Laurel and Encinal last week, for Superintendent of School Ken Ranella (pictured speaking) it must have seemed like a case of deju vu.

The Oak Knoll project, like projects at the two other schools, was funded by a $91 million school facility bond measure passed in 2006. It included $8.6 million in new construction and $2.8 million on renovations of existing structures. Parents gathered tonight could take a look at the new 4th/5th classroom, art room, music room and gymnasium, new doors and windows for existing classrooms, a remodeled library, and resurfaced blacktop play area and reconstructed kindergarten playground.

Work continues on a new grass playing field, new science room, and three new office and small instructional spaces.

Hi Ms. Guerra, This Is Sander,

I miss Oak Knoll, because Oak Knoll is for little kids.
