Students in the Gifted and Talented program at Cache Intermediate School work on a project in one of the school’s new classrooms that was recently occupied following the completion of the nearly $1 million project.That project, paid by surplus funds from a 2010 bond, included the addition of several classrooms along with a counselor’s office, music room and self-contained classroom for special needs students.

Cache Intermediate students get more room to learn

CACHE  Students and teachers at Cache Intermediate School have a little bit more space to work in thanks to a recently completed expansion.
 
Skeeter Sampler, the school's principal, said the new addition was occupied just after classes resumed following the Christmas holiday. The $939,400 project included a 5,000-square-foot addition to the existing school building to the south. It includes three classrooms, a counselor's office, music classroom and a self-contained classroom for special needs students.
 
"We're using two of the new classrooms for Title I reading and math classes, and a third for the speech therapy, program" he said. 
 
Sampler said the new counselor's office has additional space to serve more students at one time.
 
"Our counselor had a very small office and could only visit with a small number of students at one time," he said.
 
The new music classroom is also more spacious.
 
"It allows the students to do more movement and dance activities than where they were before," he said. "We have a great fine arts program."
