Hunt Elementary looks a little different this school year.

The construction of a 12 classroom addition is complete, and fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students are learning in brand new classrooms equipped with technology upgrades, audio systems, and shared project rooms.

The technology upgrades include interactive flat panels at the front of the classroom and display panels in the back for easier viewing. Teachers can interact with the front panel using a tablet from anywhere in the room.

Classrooms have audio systems to project the teacher’s voice throughout the room. According to research, student learning improves when students can hear the teacher more clearly.

All classrooms at Hunt have received the technology and audio upgrades. The existing building received new paint, carpet, and HVAC systems. There is a new playground with a synthetic surface.

The new construction meets Washington state’s green building standard for high performance buildings. This environmentally friendly design includes energy efficiency, daylighting, water conservation, storm water treatment, and use of sustainable materials. 

“The Hunt classroom addition project is the first of our six bond projects completed. The students, staff, and community were wonderful partners during the construction and supported a very smooth and successful project. We appreciate their support and excitement for the upgrades and improvements to Hunt!”
Chief Operations Officer Mario Casello
