See how we're doing
With construction on the new Boze Elementary starting Monday, you will begin to see a lot of changes. The school day routine, however, will remain largely the same for staff, students and families.
Korsmo Construction will start its work by installing safety fencing to separate the existing school building, play areas and parking lots from the construction zone.
Students who walk to school using the entrances off East 68th Street can continue to access the school that way, although the entrances will get moved over a few feet. Korsmo will add new fencing and a gravel path there. Parking lots and drop-off areas will not change.
The fencing will cut off some of the current play area, so Principal Wilkins plans to make more use of the west side of the campus for recess and outdoor P.E.
How will construction impact the neighborhood?We know from experience bringing a major construction project into a neighborhood impacts its residents. Tacoma Public Schools and Korsmo Construction want to limit that impact as much as possible and make sure neighbors know what to expect.

What’s the construction and demolition schedule?
Boze students, staff, families and neighbors showed all the feels when they got a peek at what their future school will look like. Shouts of excitement and tears of pride marked the ceremony, where Boze students shared art quilts themed “Who We Are,” before they marched outside to dig into the space where their new school will stand.
Construction starts this month. Boze students expect to celebrate their first day in their new building in September 2020.
Check out students’ reactions to seeing a video of their new school for the first time.
