Helen Thackston Students Enjoy New Classrooms
June 24, 2013 – In September 2012, Stewart & Tate began construction of a 40,808 SF addition to the Helen Thackston Charter School on East Philadelphia Street in downtown York. The school continued to use the existing facility while the addition was completed over the next eight months. A very cold and wet winter made work difficult on this masonry structure. However, on May 20th, the students moved into their new classrooms. The addition also includes a teacher’s lounge, gymnasium, kitchen and office space.
Now that the students and faculty have relocated to the new part of the building, work has begun on the renovation of the existing 27,750 SF facility. This transformation is planned for completion at the beginning of the 2013/2014 school year.
