Over the 2017-2018 winter break, Clear Lake High School finally completed enough construction of its new campus to host all classrooms and offices.

My favorite thing about the new building isn’t my beautiful new classroom or the amazing library or even the awesome commons—my favorite thing is finally having the entire campus under one roof,” English teacher Mrs. Salgy said. “It’s been so much fun seeing fellow teachers  I would only see at our faculty meetings and I’m constantly running into upperclassmen who I haven’t talked to since they were in 9th grade.”

Many of the updated features added to the newest parts of the new building are being enjoyed and utilized to the fullest by students. Falcons of all grade levels eat lunch in the new cafeteria, record in the AV studio, and sit – or sleep – at the desks of classrooms on both floors. However, these improvements aren’t just for those who are here to learn.

“As a music teacher, I love the new PAC [Performing Arts Center],” orchestra director Kevin Black said. “Our students have always deserved a performance space that is worthy of their talent. Although, as we are not completely done with the construction of the school yet, I’m excited to see how the blank walls will be decorated.”

Several decorations have already made their way on to the walls of the school, such as an inspiring quote by Ellison Onizuka, one of the astronauts who passed away during the destruction of Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986. There are also some decorations with small mistakes: a mural with the moon on the wrong side and a Falcons wordle with the word “organzied” instead of “organized” in the “O.”

I think this building is a great upgrade,” art teacher Peter Storms said. “I love my new room. It has a lot of space and it is definitely suited to my needs.”

The new areas and wide-open spaces of the new building are impressive, but the little things haven’t been neglected. The new building also comes with multiple technological upgrades as well.

In the NGC, there was the mold, the time we lost in student passing, the A/C issues, and the broken copiers,”  Mrs. Salgy said. “There isn’t much I miss [about the old building].”

After all, it seems that the new building is a much-needed addition to the Clear Lake campus, and one that will stay for a long time.
