This week, the Arrowstreet schools team attended a celebratory Open House of the Fenway High School, where we completed renovations for the start of the school year. The Open House was a chance for faculty and staff, administrators, student ambassadors, parents, and neighbors to celebrate the potential of the space and speak about the future of school buildings and students education. We were very honored by the kind words Associate Head of School, Kevin Brill, had to say about Arrowstreet and our design and construction team emphasizing how the strong relationship and dynamics between the School, the City of Boston, and Arrowstreet nurtured the success of the project. We also enjoyed the opportunity to tour the building by some fabulous students who spoke so highly of their new school home and see the spaces being used and loved.
One of the most fulfilling parts of the Fenway High School project was including a full cooking kitchen as a part of the school’s cafeteria. It was very important to Fenway High to have a kitchen where they could provide healthy meals for their student population. The new kitchen has provided Fenway High with the opportunity to partner with Project Bread in the “Chefs in School” program, which brings chefs into public school meal programs to help create tasty, nutritious, appealing food that students enjoy eating. We were able to talk to Fenway’s chef at the Open House and sample some of the delicious foods that the students are enjoying as part of this fabulous program.
We wish the students and teachers a successful school year and are happy to have brought the new Fenway High up to standard for a 21st century learning environment.
