Denny is offering 'One Last Look' on June 11
Denny International Middle School and Seattle Public Schools are inviting the community, almuni and parents to take "One Last Look" at the original David T. Denny Junior High School Building at 8402 30th Ave. s.w. on June 11.
The event is a chance to walk the halls for a final time before the school is torn down to prepare for the next phase of construction in the BEX plan.
The event begins at 9:30 am with a reception for former staff in the library
At 10:00 the public has a chance to stroll through the halls with a program in the lunchroom following at 10:30 am that will last until Noon.
If you'd like more information contact Dick Lee at 206-252-0476 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The last day for students is June 23 and the final day for teachers is June 24. Demolition will begin almost immediately.
The school is named for David T. Denny, one of Seattle’s early settlers and an early member of the Seattle School Board. Denny opened as a Middle School in 1952.
The new Denny International Middle School nearing the end of construction on the Chief Sealth International High School campus will open in a ribbon cutting ceremony Sept. 6 at 1:00 pm. A community celebration will take place on Sept. 24. at 10:00 am where both schools will share a combined facility but will remain separate entities.
According to the BEX page on the Seattle Schools website, "In April, work was nearly completed on the Chief Sealth International High School library high roof replacement. At Denny International Middle School, the contractor completed installation of classroom projectors, casework and flooring, and interior doors and hardware. Work continues on concrete paving in the north Denny courtyard. The greenhouse and toolshed were installed at the Denny wetlands restoration classroom. Fire alarm testing by Seattle Fire Department began.
In May, the Chief Sealth library roof project will be completed. At Denny International Middle School, the contractors will complete landscaping plantings, installation of tackable surfaces and wainscoting, and final cleaning. A traffic circle will be constructed at SW Kenyon and 26th Ave SW."
