I have to say that this entire construction project has been a nightmare at Boyce. While we just arrived at Boyce this school year and have had to only endure the ending renovations I feel bad for those students who have endured the entire renovation project. What I have a hard time comprehending though is the fact that on 10/21/11 there is to be another Rededication at Boyce for the students however work still isn't really anymore completed than it was at the first dedication. So why are we wasting the teachers and students time to have them go back through the process of the dedication. In my opinion I would wait until after the holidays and when the students come back from Winter Break, have the rededication then so they can see everything done. The biggest part that isn't done and why they are having this is for the gym. I just wish some people would look at it straight on instead of hind sight!!!!!!
