It was a very busy summer at TCCS, as many aspects of our ambitious construction projects wrapped up!
In collaboration with Friends of Teaneck Community Charter School, TCCS is proud to unveil a completely reconfigured and renovated Kindergarten Suite. The Suite boasts three spacious, state-of-the-art classrooms outfitted with custom cabinetry and cubbies for the students. This year, TCCS begins it long-planned enrollment expansion by expanding Kindergarten to 45 pupils. The design of the Suite creates an inviting learning environment for our students. Class size has been reduced to 15 students per instructor, providing greater interaction and engagement. The Kindergarten Suite also features a small Pantry/Kitchen and upgraded bathrooms. With an eye toward next year, when our rising K’s join the ranks of the 1-2 students, an additional classroom has been created by converting a storage room into a new, spacious first/second grade classroom overlooking the playground!
Meanwhile, the Gymnasium and Creative Arts Suite project hums along and is entering the final stretch!
We are proud to announce that the Visual Arts classroom (Ms. Abbie’s room) was open for business for the 1st day of school! We appreciate LaRocca Construction’s efforts and collaboration to make this happen.
Now that the Art Room is in its new home, the Science Classrooms have been able to shift around so that both 5/6 and 7/8 science rooms have running water and ample space for labs.
The Performing Arts Suite, the Digital Media Studio, and the new Copy Center for instructors will be opening in the next couple of weeks!
The GYM! We’re almost there! The sports equipment (backstops) is being installed soon. Then the wood floor gets laid, sanded, painted, and sealed. Completion is within reach!
Stay tuned for more construction updates!
