Tapestry Charter School will break ground Tuesday for its new elementary school building and multi-use athletic field on Great Arrow Avenue.
School officials also are expected to share new details about plans for construction and Tapestry's future.
Tapestry, a K to 12 school that opened in September 2001, plans to spend $11 million to construct a three-story building at 111 Great Arrow Ave. for its kindergarten through fifth-grade classes, which would move over from its current building adjacent to the site. That will open up more space to enroll students in the upper grades as demand grows.
Tapestry currently enrolls 825 students, but plans for more than 1,000.
The new 60,158-square-foot building – clad with red, blue, gray and off-white metal and stone panels – would include a large gymnasium, administrative areas, classrooms, a cafeteria, a classroom for the arts and a laboratory for science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
The project also would add a soccer field, green space and 83 additional parking spaces for employees.
