GREG BAKER: Hello, I'm superintendent Greg Baker. Welcome to our video groundbreaking for the rebuilt Parkview Elementary School. Thanks to our community support for the 2018 school bond, construction is now moving forward to rebuild this 63-year-old school. The state of the art design incorporates flexibility for technology, as well as create spaces that maximize learning, and help support all our kids in achieving the outcomes of the Bellingham Promise. MYLO ALLEN: Hi, I'm principal Mylo Allen. Parkview is tucked in the cozy Cornwall Park neighborhood, right next to the beautiful 70-acre park. It is truly a neighborhood school. The new building has been designed with that in mind. And since it is being built in the open space right next door, we'll be able to continue to use the old Parkview until the new building is ready for us in fall 2021. CURTIS LAWYER: The Parkview design advisory committee worked with Bellingham based Zervas Architects on the design of the new Parkview. We have a great history with Zervas. They were the design firm for Wade King Elementary School, Northern Heights Elementary School, Kulshan Middle School, Shuksan Middle School, the addition at Parkview Elementary, and most recently, Options High School. Zervas has designed neighborhood school that will support collaboration and communication, is warm and welcoming, and meets the needs of the whole child. We look forward to partnering with SpeeWest contractors as our general contractor on this project. MYLO ALLEN: One thing I've learned in my years here at Parkview is that we Pandas are creative, determined, and fun. Since being together for the groundbreaking of our new school isn't an option right now, I'm going to go ahead and get us started. But that doesn't mean I'm doing it alone. Thank you to Parkview staff, students, and families for helping with our virtual groundbreaking. [MUSIC PLAYING] WOMAN: There we go. MYLO ALLEN: Thanks for joining me, Curtis, and Dr. Baker for our video groundbreaking. I look forward to seeing you as soon as we can, and I'm excited about the opening of our new neighborhood school in the fall of 2021. [MUSIC PLAYING]
