Students, parents and staff at El Dorado Elementary celebrated not only the end of the year, but the completion of a year-long refurbishing project that brought them new furniture, kitchen, computers and even a new marquee sign by the school’s entrance!

On Thursday, December 9, 2010, visitors strolled throughout the campus, received everywhere by synchronized welcoming words by student-hosts. But most of the action was centered at the school’s multipurpose room, where musical talent was being showcased by students and teachers.

The library was the scene of what’s yet to come. One-foot square mosaic pieces formed a wall to wall mural that was missing the last ten or so feet, some of them assembled on the floor. “We’re almost done,” stated art instructor Cuauhtémoc “Temo” Moreno, noting that more than 300 students have taken part on the 400-piece project for the last three years, “it will be finished by January,” he concluded.

Up to the early 1970’s El Dorado School used to be housed at the Stockton School for Adults when was moved to the present school site, said El Dorado principal Teresa Oden, adding that all this year’s improvements were paid for with 2005 voter-approved Measure C monies.
