Summer Maintenance Wrap Up

New roofs, more portables, and gallons and gallons of paint

This was a busy summer for our Construction Department, as they took on and completed a wide variety of maintenance projects to keep our students and staff safe.

The following projects were all general maintenance projects. No money from the 2019 Bond was used to complete them.

Painting Projects

Exterior painting and repairs were completed at Frontier Middle, Pioneer Valley and Roy elementary schools. Interior painting was done at Camas Prairie and Graham elementary schools.

Roof Replacements

Roof replacements were completed at Centennial, Naches Trail, and all buildings at Roy Elementary. Portable roof repairs were also completed at Cedarcrest Middle, Bethel High, and Roy Elementary.

Seismic Improvements

This was the end of the first year of our Hazard Mitigation Projects. Focused on seismic improvements, these projects saw the anchoring of the roof to the walls in Bethel Middle’s auxiliary gym, the anchoring of the roof to the walls at Elk Plain K-8, and the anchoring of the masonry walls to the framing at the Operations Service Center.

14 New Portable Classrooms Added

  • Bethel High School — two double dry portables
  • Elk Plain — one double dry for SPED program
  • Graham Elementary — one double dry portable
  • Spanaway Lake High School — three double dry portables

Challenger High School Phase I

The 8,000 square foot building at Challenger High School is well underway. You can follow the progress using the online construction camera. Phase I is funded through the General Fund, while Phase II is part of the bond package.


Many other projects were completed this summer including repaving the Graham-Kapowsin High School tennis courts, tenant improvements to the Educational Service Center Building 1, and a revised bus loop at Roy Elementary that will help site circulation.

Helping kids learn is the driving force behind all we do in the Bethel School District.
