glenviewlantern.com news the glenview lantern | April 12, 2018 | 3 Maple students toss first dirt ahead of new school construction Chris Pullam, Editor Twelve Maple School students wielding golden spades broke ground for their new school against a backdrop of industrial bulldozers, excavators and backhoe loaders. Wearing red, plastic hard hats and winter coats, the Mustangs dug their tools into the ground and flung dirt into the sky amid a chorus of cheers at the end of Northbrook/Glenview School District 30’s groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, April 5. Then the D30 Board of Education took its turn, followed by district administrators, staff, teachers, village leaders, local politicians, former board members, the architectural team from ARCON Associates and representatives from Nicholas & Associates Construction. The ceremony began inside the school, where Maple Principal Dr. Nathan Carter and D30 Superintendent Dr. Brian Wegley addressed a gymnasium packed with students, parents and key stakeholders. Local dignitaries at the event included Northbrook Village President Sandy Frum, Northbrook Village Manager Rich Nahrstadt, State Rep. Jonathan Carroll (D-Northbrook), Shiva Mohsenzadeh from the office of State Rep. Laura Fine (D-Glenview), State Sen. Julie Morrison (D- 29th District), Northfield Township Supervisor Jill Brickman, Northbrook Library Director Kate Hall and Glenview Park District Director Mike McCartney. Also in attendance were former D30 board members Karen Roloff, Scott “This project means a great deal to us. It means that our students will have access to technology and learning spaces that will benefit their education, and it means we will have a consistent climate from classroom to classroom.” Dr. Nathan Carter — Maple principal on the importance of building a new middle school for Glenview and Northbrook students. Margolin and Carlo Cavallero, as well as former Maple Principal Steven Waitz. Carter spent most of his time at the podium thanking the countless individuals who dedicated their time to actualizing the project while Wegley outlined the fruits of their labor via a PowerPoint presentation. “This is truly a community that cares about its students, and they showed that during the referendum and how they voted,” Carter said after the ceremony. “This project means a great deal to us. It means that our students will have access to technology and learning spaces that will benefit their education, and it means we will have a consistent climate from classroom to classroom.” According to Carter, the current school experiences year-round heating and cooling issues, and students often move from warm classrooms to cold classrooms and back again throughout the day. To make matters worse, parts of the current building leak when it rains, forcing educators to use sandbags to keep water away from learning areas. “These are environmental distractions that our students shouldn’t have to deal with,” Carter said. “Our teachers have done a great job managing these issues, but they shouldn’t exist in the first place.” While 14 classrooms in the current building lack windows and, as a result, natural light, the new design stresses open space and floor-to-ceiling windows. It also encourages exploration through a number of convertible areas, such as stairways with attached benches for collaboration on group projects, and innovative learning environments, like a twostory science space for gravitational experiments. Several components of the old school, such as the sports wall, will find a new home in the new structure. Others, like the area celebrating the Six Pillars of Character, will be completely remodeled. “We live those pillars every day here at Maple,” Maple students and stakeholders celebrate the construction of the new middle school during the groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, April 5. PHOTO SUBMITTED Carter said. “Our students embrace the concept as they live their lives. They’re not taught separately from other subjects here. They’re taught parcel to everything else at Maple. It’s just who we are.” Voters in District 30 overwhelmingly supported the construction of a new Maple School, with a threequarters majority voting in favor of the $36.3 million bond referendum in April 2017. The District will also spend $5.2 million of its reserves on the project for a total price tag of $41.5 million. The majority, $40.6 million, will go toward the new school, with another $369,600 and $508,480 for STEM, classroom and parking improvements at Wescott and Willowbrook schools, respectively. The new 111,000-squarefoot school, the future home of District 30’s sixththrough eighth-graders, will replace the existing roughly-89,000-squarefoot facility that was built The new 111,000-square-foot school will replace the existing 89,000-square-foot facility that was built in 1949. IMAGE SUBMITTED in 1949. It will be on the same Shermer Road location, but the main facility will be built on the athletic field of the current building. Construction will conclude in time for the 2019- 20 school year. School administration and staff, which have been working out of trailers adjacent to the current Maple building, will be based in the Northview Bank and Trust building on Waukegan Road in Northfield during the construction. Last year’s referendum didn’t include an outline for how to replace the administrative building connected to the current facility, but the board approved the construction of a new twostory structure that will be part of the Maple School rebuilding project during its March 15 meeting. The debt certificates associated with the construction cannot exceed $2,025,000, and the purchase agreement calls for the certificates to mature in 10 years and be financed the operations fund.
