This is the first place most visitors see and it’s where almost everyone passes through at least once a day and usually more often. It’s where visitors are received, students wait for buses and where their drivers come in from the cold and and can turn off their idling engines.
It’s a place to read a book, have a conversation and watch the PDS world whirl by. In other words it’s an important place for the school community – reception area, theater foyer, display space, waiting room and agora.
It’s a place for ideas, inspiration, imagination and invention and a place to find the company to do it all with.
It’s colorful, comfortable, appealing and attractive. It includes the living green wall of plants and a LED monitor to help us keep track of events and stay informed. It has cabinets and wall space for display. It has room to move and places to sit.
And – it also has an elephant. (You will have to look for that.)
This is a place of beauty where form serves function. I hope you come and see it soon. And when you see Board president Stan Lichens thank him for this transformation and let him know what you think.
