Everywhere you look in the Elmira City School District it seems as if there is construction taking place. We are excited to see lots of work happening in most of our buildings. We have made lots of progress as we work towards new playgrounds at our elementary schools, upgrades in the auditoriums at Broadway Academy and Elmira High School, and necessary roofing and pavement throughout the district. Our construction crews are very busy making sure they have everything ready to go for September.
