These photos show only some of the incredible damage sustained by the 8th grade portion of the new school. The tilted walls and mangled ceilings are testimony to the incredible force delivered by the tornado.  Ultimately 7 classrooms had to be demolished.  Construction crews will rebuild these in time for the start of the 2002-03 school year!
