"Almost" After Photos - Interior

Ok, can you tell I'm more of a Instagrammer vs Blogger because I'm seriously lacking on the posts here! We've got up to date stuff on both Twitter on Instagram, so if you're not following us yet, do it! 

Furniture from Collaborative for Children is coming in! I'm hoping the classrooms will all be set up by the end the month so I can go over with my "fancy camera" (ie not my iphone) and take real-deal "after" photos -- but for now, here are some shots of Freedom Academy's Resource Room and Pre-K room.

Seriously, what a difference. Pastor also let me know the Church now has enough money saved to extend the new flooring into -- the hallways!! So exciting!

Volunteer Day Photos!

We had an incredible turnout, great weather, and an amazing time at our volunteer days in September in October!

We were able to transform nine classrooms and playground space with the help of over a hundred volunteers in the course of six volunteer days.

A big thank you to University of Houston's Business School Honors Program, University of Texas Exes - Houston Chapter, Jersey Village High School Key Club, Bridgeway Capital Management, The Monarch School, Park Temple Baptist Church, as well as all of our individual volunteers for coming out and making Freedom Academy look incredible.

Before Photos!

We've got some before shots to show you - there is a lot of space here ... 9 classrooms and a lot of outdoor space! We'll share our project scope in another post but for now here are some pics ...

Interior shots:

 This is currently a storage room - and cow nap room - but will be turned into a teacher resource room and parent/teacher meeting space.

Exterior shots:

The outdoor space is plentiful -- click through the carousel to see some of the space outside! We hope to put some permanent shade sails in, as well as some benches, a garden box, storage, some inside/outside play tables, and some garden/nature play elements.
