January 2015

Teachers and students of San Marcos Elementary School and Carrillo Elementary School started using their new classrooms right before Thanksgiving.  Four (4) 960 sq ft Emily Classrooms were added to the San Marcos ES and five (5) 960 sq ft classrooms were added to Carrillo ES.  The over the counter DSA approval allowed for aggressive design and construction schedules.

San Marcos USD wanted the new classrooms to tie into the existing classroom buildings.  ATI Architects achieved this by making upgrades to the prototypical Emily Classroom design.  The classrooms feature metal roofs, block veneer wainscot, and stucco soffits instead of plywood.  Other new classroom features to highlight are the computer counters and backpack holders.

Stay tuned to see a video featuring the classrooms and testimonials from the District.
