Exciting news! On October 2nd Sahel Academy broke ground on a new elementary wing. We have been talking about this building for the last year and a half so it's exciting to see the work beginning. In our current elementary wing, we have four large classrooms. In our old elementary wing there are two small classrooms which my class is currently occupying. These two classrooms are fine when classes are small but they are inadequate when classes are over 10-12 students. For that very reason, our kindergarten has, until very recently, occupied one of the original buildings which is set far back into the corner of our campus away from all of the other classrooms. This new building will allow all the classes to have their own large space. We will be together and no one will have to move from year to year. Yippee! Because it will be a two story building there will be space for an elementary computer lab down the road and more classroom space for middle school as it is needed.
