Say "Auf Wiedersehen" to the old DSW main building – project “EnSan” is underway!

It is time to say “Auf Wiedersehen!” to the outdated look of the DSW main building and “Guten Tag!” to a new energy-efficient  look.

While school is out for summer, the demolition phase of the highly anticipated Energy Efficiency Renovation (EnSan) has started. After several staff members packed up their offices, the construction team did not waste any time getting to work. First, the shared office of the Deputy Head of School and the Coordinator for Grades 10-12 as well as the office of the Guidance Counselor were pulled down by the demolition team. Next on the list are the administrative offices and the art room. 

Are you as excited about the renovation result as we are? We do not want to keep you in suspense.  Satisfy your curiosity by taking a look behind the EnSan scenes with some recent photos.

We can hardly wait to see the puzzled looks of our students when they first see the progress of the remodeling of the Business Offices as they return for classes. Until then, we will keep you posted on the latest EnSan developments.

We would like to thank Patrick Voellmar of International Moving Services for the generous donation of moving boxes.
