I just read in the Maysville Paper that funding may be alloted for construction of a new school in Ewing to replace the one now, I was just wondering where the new Ewing School would be built and what would they do with the existing school? Any ideas? Thanks.

Well, my extremely close relative teaches there and she told me this about two years ago and said they were looking at a space more towards Nepton.

What is wrong with the school they have now. Didn't they just build on I think they ought to spend that money on computers and other stuff the kids need instead of asking so many donation from the parents if they got so much money to spend on a new school. Ewing is a great school with great teacher, a wounderful people out there. That i fully trust my child with I just think they could spend that money on something else besides building. If the school is moved to nepton it wouldn't be called ewing anymore

I agree, the school could not be called "Ewing School" if it was moved to Nepton.

You can only do so many renovations to an old building. Especially one that was built such a long time ago. Ewingparent maybe you need to go to the school and take a good look around the interior. It is in very poor conditon. As far as you saying "if they got so much money to spend on a new school", Ewing Elementary or the county does not have the money that it will cost to build the new school. That is way we are waiting on the house pill to pass and hopefully we will get the necessary funding.

Absolutely, school mom. I grew up in that school and ceilings leak, bats get in, the gym floods and is uneven, not to mention it just hasn't been properly maintained over the years.

They have plenty of computers for each child to manage. Copious amounts of technology isn't necessary for basic knowledge, which is what you learn in elementary school. Save the computer bucks for middle and high school.

Well i think the younger kids needs computers too because that is what there gernration is. Why dont they take the kids on more trips or pay the teachers a little more so they don't have to take money out of their pocket.
My husband and I both grew up in that school also and have many memeoirs there. Thats why we bought our home in ewing so our kids could go to the same school we did.

I don't think the bats ever hurt us while we where there. We always thought they where neat.

School trips have become increasingly expensive over the last few years. Whoever pays for the trips has to pay so much per mile plus the cost of diesel to drive the bus and the bus driver. When I was younger school trips were plentiful. But now with state regs with testing etc. it is hard to find time to take away from classroom teaching. The children at Ewing have a very nice computer lab. I too am an Ewing Alumni and would not trade those years for anything. But the school our children are attending today is not the same. It is definitely in need of attention not only structurally but also with cleanliness. Bats can carry disease. Not to mention snakes that have been found in classrooms.
A new school if we get the funding will be a great addition to the community it is built and will give our children a better learning enviroment.

I do agree that teachers should earn more money.

Where else do you expect it to be in the great metropolis of Ewing?

The space they are looking at IS towards Nepton.

they can build or remodel an old school, gosh take the high school for example, we have to move around in the school just for renevations all the time, i think they can just remodel or build on, not build a whole entire new building

ewing school is in a perfect location. I agree that there isn't any need in building a completly new school. The one they have now is perfectly fine. A few renevations are the only thing that place needs.

I love that my kids attend Ewing school, however, I agree with the condition of the older part. Especially the heating/air system. It heats/cools unevenly and those that tend to sit further from it, tend to stay colder in the winter. Most of the staff there are top notch and I am glad my children attend.

It's not handicap accessible. That's a major reason why. Like someone else said, you can only renovate an old building so many times... A whole new building would be the best bet.

i agree with flipid, it seems quite rediculus to bulid a new school when renovations can be made!!

It is always a good idea to use the resources available, but sometimes this is not an option. The school has been open since the 20's and is lucky to have survived this long. The old school section is full of asbestos in the ceilings, layout is hard to heat and maintain. The study has been done on a new gym and it was not possible to build to the existing structure. Besides the kids get a new school and that is what is important. Good luck Ewing.

Renovations cannot be made to a building that doesn't even have a solid foundation. The expected time is three years, so that means four or five.
