“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” – Sir Winston Churchill
After shaping generations of children for over 90 years, AE Angier Elementary School’s final chapter ended today. After removal of windows and some items which will be included into the new school (the medallions over each of the main entry doors for example), final demolition of the structure began this morning.
Angier students will be bussed to the Carr school for the next 18 months, maintaining their identity as “Angier at Carr,” with a projected return to the new school to take place around February of 2016.
Old Angier had fallen victim to both poor maintenance and to changing educational requirements over the years, rendering the facility a top MSBA replace/renovate candidate. It will be up to the new facility to “shape” the next generations of Angier students.
Farewell dear friend.
