Hard work continues on the Dike-Newell relocation! Contractors and staff have been busy this week cleaning out the old building and working on the necessary renovations and other changes needed for the building to be up and running by the end of August. Thank you to our wonderful community for your continued support!
Things are moving right along at the former Bath Tech facility where Dike-Newell School will be moving in this fall! Just this morning, our Facilities Crew relocated the school sign which will be a welcoming, familiar sight for students, staff, and families!
This week Bath Tech hosted a Summer bridge program for students entering 9th and 10th grade. Students were able to experience a different program each day for five days. This exciting summer experience will give students an opportunity to participate in career and technical experiences with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) focus. Students participated in culinary arts, cosmetology, graphic design, welding, automotive, carpentry and electrical.
