School board hears progress on new school
The Grand Coulee Dam School District board got a lesson in color combinations as architect Cameron Golightly, from Design West, reviewed the color schemes of the new K-12 school Monday night.
He explained that the K-6 wing would be a bit more colorful than the 7-12 wing which will have more “grown up” colors.
Golightly reviewed color schemes for flooring, wall coverings and countertops during his presentation.
The color schemes reflected earth tones, similar to those being considered for the outside of the building.
Board members were quick to get in the fray, throwing out all kinds of color suggestions, only at the end giving the architect the green light to finalize the plan.
The architects from the Pullman firm have been working through a core group made up of administrators, teachers and townspeople.
Golightly assured the board that the timeline was progressing well and that the district could go out for bid as early as mid-January, 2013.
That would mean that a construction start of late spring could be comfortably met.
Emily Williams, a senior at Lake Roosevelt High School, told the board that she would like to do a project for the new school. It was suggested that she consider doing a sign for the voc-tech building.
