If you haven't driven past the site as I have, you will find these mural recreations stunning.  That said, I am amazed how little outdoor space is left at the site.  I had honestly thought between two schools, there would be a lot more of it.

Decatur is opening in the fall and it is HCC.

Also, don't forget Licton Springs, a K-8 option school with native cultures and social justice focus located within RESMS!

UNEA was mainly instrumental in the Naming of the Robert Eagle Staff Building. They should be recognized and applauded by the Eagle Staff Family, the District, the Board and the Community for their involvement. Hopefully, the District will communicate this to the Eagle Staff family and UNEA will be invited to attend all of the ceremonies connected with the opening, dedication etc. of the Robert Eagle Staff Building.
