Garden Oaks Montessori Bond Community Meeting Being Held February 2

You are invited to attend a Bond Community Meeting for Garden Oaks Montessori Magnet, 901 Sue Barnett on Tuesday, February 2 at 7:00 p.m. being held in the cafeteria. Please come and hear from the architect and project manager on current design plans and get an update on the project status.

As part of HISD’s $1.89 billion bond program, Garden Oaks will receive a new $26.6 million addition and general renovations of the existing facilities designed to accommodate 750 to 900 students.

The design plans feature both new and renovated classroom spaces, a new multipurpose gymnasium, and a new secure main entrance. Additional parking and separate bus and parent drop-off driveways, as well as upgraded electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems are also included in the scope of work.

The school will feature flexible, child-centered learning spaces that will accommodate diverse learning styles with integrated technology. The project team hopes to retain most of the green space and trees that are important to the school and incorporate outdoor learning centers. The school is currently in the design phase, which will continue in 2016. Construction is expected to begin later this year and take about 18 months to complete.

We hope you can make plans to attend this important community meeting. Immediately following the community meeting, the regular business meeting of the Garden Oaks Civic Club meeting will convene.
