West Seattle schools: Arbor Heights Elementary teardown revs up

While demolition crews did a bit of work at the old Arbor Heights Elementary School site on the Friday before Labor Day, they didn’t start tearing down its buildings in earnest until this morning, starting on the south side of the campus. (Thanks to Elise and Joe for the tips.)

Arbor Heights students and staff are spending this year and next at the Boren Building, shared with K-5 STEM, while the new school is built. Renderings were shown at a community meeting in June, including these:

That same meeting (WSB coverage here) included the project’s two-part timeline; this site work is expected to continue through November, and then a stopdown is planned until the Phase 2 bid is awarded, with the rest of the work to begin in spring.

    Started Arbor Heights in the 1st grade in Miss Hagey’s class, 2nd was Miss La Boarde…Odd, but I cannot seem to remember 3rd or 4th grade teachers (they must have been none inspirational), but 5th was Miss Shitama and 6th was Ms.Sarri. On to Denny Jr. High and Chief Sealth, where I was a Sealthette……Anybody else have history??

    I had both Miss Shitama and Ms.Sarri too! What years were you at AH, Dancing Cat? I had Miss Morrison for first grade and Miss Fellows for second. Like you I also went to Denny and graduated from Sealth in 1978.

Sorry, comment time is over.
