The construction crew has started grading and compacting the soil. You can already start to get an idea of how things will look. It’s time for a virtual tour.
View From the School Parking LotIn the foreground (on the left) is the area for the volleyball court. The mound of dirt is where the grassy “chilling” area will be. In the background, you can see where the basketball court will be located.
Here you can get a better view of the basketball court area.
View From Whitsett
You are looking from just on the other side of where the sidewalk will be. You can see the basketball court and the running track on either side of the mound. The track will go around the whole recreation area.

Here is a better view of the volleyball court and the running track on either side. On the left, you can see the poles for the fence are already installed.
We are, literally, moving the earth to construct our new recreation area for our Boys Division. Stay tuned for a virtual tour of the construction site.
It may not be the Berlin Wall, but it is a significant start to our building project. The wall between the Boys Division parking lot and the soon-to-be New Recreation Area is being taken down today. A temporary construction fence will be installed next.
A new song, Inner Flame, debuted at the VTHS Trustees Dinner.
Work has begun on the Recreation Area at the Boys Division!! The trees were all cleared out of the lot. Next step: grading (not the A-, B+ kind of grading; removing and straightening out the dirt).
