During their recent Regular Meeting, the TCSD Board of Trustees approved the lease of two of the modular buildings on the JES campus to the Jackson Hole Children's Museum (JHCM).
The former elementary classrooms will provide a home for the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum for the next year, with the option to renew the lease for an additional year. JHCM will use one of the buildings as a museum, and the other as classroom and office space.
As part of the lease agreement, JHCM will provide their annual STEAM programing to TCSD #1 K-5 students at no cost to the school district.
Superintendent Gillian Chapman stated about the agreement, “The JHCM is a valued community partner so we are pleased to be in a position to provide the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum with a temporary home while they continue their efforts to find a permanent location.” JHCM Executive Director, Jean Lewis added, “We are thrilled and so appreciative of this collaboration. The JES annex buildings are an ideal location and allow us to continue serving the families and children of our community through engaging play and learning experiences and out-of-school programming.”
The one-year lease agreement takes effect January 1, 2019.
