And how cool is that? Country Day logo on a real gym floor
For alumni, past parents, and all who knew the Castle Creek campus "back in the day," there may be no more stunning sight on our redeveloped campus than soon-to-be-completed new PE facilities. The idea of an actual gym, with actual full-size basketball court, where you can actually play basketball, was not even imaginable. And to have our own school crest painted on the gym floor -- just amazing, and testimony to the partnership with the Aspen Music Festival & School on this shared campus. 
Then: the old gym in the eighties
Now: wow. the new gym: see our crest?
Here's a quick construction update in photos. As one observer notes, "Some of the pictures look like progress is going backwards because everything is so messy, but it's simply a lot of tasks moving concurrently; progress is actually being made!"
New gym from the outside. Inside, finishes are almost complete and heat is working.
Red doors mean "welcome" and "protection" in some traditions. 
New science classroom in the Middle School building. A real science lab!
The new dining hall with its porch right beside the pond.

Ready for lunch? new kitchen appliances
Come on in: entrance to dining hall
