With the support of the PTO, PoPS, and the School Council, the Bigelow auditorium was painted during the holiday break. This is part of our ongoing work to upgrade the auditorium and create a space that is as high-quality as the performances of our students on stage. Previous work has included new light fixtures, new curtains, and a new storage unit for theatrical sets. The next project will be new carpeting, which is scheduled to be installed in February. More information here and here.
