20/20 Vision Progress Update for March 14, 2022 Progress is still happening here at Mark Twain. The lockers for the Senior Lounge and football locker rooms have arrived and were installed last Thursday. Also last Thursday, the Board of Education approved the bids for Phase III projects for the 2022 summer months. The next phase includes interior renovations of the high school classrooms and the hallways of the junior high. Our cafeteria and gymnasium will receive a fresh update as well; including the stage area with new flooring, paint and curtains. Exterior updates will include parking lot lighting to illuminate the campus from the elementary to the high school. Wayward signage will assist with the traffic flow on and off highway 19 as well as on campus. The exterior of the building will also be updated with extended life materials where the painted panels exist now while adding to curb appeal. Additional improvements slated for this summer include concrete parking additions immediately west of the junior high, sound system, projector and screen for the RCE gymnasium. Not connected to our bond issue funded but instead covered by property insurance after a catastrophic roof leak; the junior high gym roof was replaced in January and now the gymnasium floor bids were reviewed and selected for full replacement later this spring. During the summer of 2023, we are anticipating a turn lane being added to Highway 19. A match grant was written and approved for the project, but our project moved from a tier 2 to a tier 1 project with MoDOT and will now be fully funded with MoDOT funds. As you can see, this is going to be a busy summer full of progress. It’s a great time to be a TIGER! #20/20Vision
