Adobe Acres Celebrates New Kindergarten Wing

The school also got a new art/music room and renovated cafeteria.

Adobe Acres recently held a dedication for its seven new kindergarten classrooms, a new playground with artificial turf, and a renovated cafeteria and kitchen.

The afternoon ceremony on Sept. 11 included tours of the new facilities led by students and staff.

The $5.03 million project was completed this summer and opened to the 600 students at Adobe Acres when school began in August. Included in the project are almost 22,000-square-feet of new or remodeled space that houses the kindergarten classrooms, an art and music room, a renovated and expanded kitchen and cafeteria with bathrooms and storage, as well as new artificial turf on the playground and a separate play area for kindergarteners.

APS Board of Education President Dr. Analee Maestas and APS Chief Operations Officer Ruben Hendrickson welcomed students and their families as they showed off the new and renovated spaces. State Sen. Michael Padilla also spoke about how the addition is helping instruction and improving the area for families.

T.A. Cole & Sons was the general contractor on the project and RMKM Architects was in charge of the project’s design.
