The building’s signature tower was removed in September. The tower was an architectural hold-over from 1937-1950, when the building operated as a movie theater. [Update, Saturday, Jan. 15: a My Green Lake reader remembers watching this building being built in 1937. See his comment below.]
Extensive remodeling has taken place at the building, according to Ray France Sosa, Business Manager at La Escuelita Bilingual School. The school will be joining Pacific Color in the building in March.
A flier about the school describes La Escuelita as “a bilingual bicultural educational program” for children ranging in age from infants through 5-year-olds. The school uses a theme-based curriculum that “offers opportunities for children to work in groups,” as well as “interactive learning based on choice and reflection.”
