Some stu­dents at Colony Oak Ele­men­tary School can ex­pect to move into their new class­rooms in the com­ing weeks. Deanna Shirlock, project man­ager at CT Bray­ton & Sons, Inc., is an­tic­i­pat­ing Mon­day, Sept. 24, as the tar­get date for young­sters to fi­nally re­lo­cate to their STEM (Sci­ence, Technology, Engi­neer­ing and Math) ed­u­ca­tional spa­ces — specif­i­cally, Build­ings F & G and the re­strooms — made pos­si­ble by voter-ap­proved Mea­sure ‘G.’

At Mon­day’s Ripon Uni­fied school board meet­ing, she noted that the case­work was in­stalled while the floors and ceil­ings were com­pleted ear­lier that day.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Ziggy Robe­son and Colony Oak Prin­ci­pal Ch­eryl Grif­fiths ex­pressed their ex­cite­ment of fi­nally see­ing stu­dents get­ting into the new class­rooms.

“We’re ready for the move in a cou­ple of weeks,” Robe­son said.
