Weston School is being torn down this week to make way for new permanent classrooms.

As the demolition team began its work on Monday with a giant CAT backhoe, teachers and students pressed against the chain link fence to watch as the familiar classrooms were turned into piles of splinters.

Four students stood with their Principal Lisa Ferreira as they watched the demolition activity.

Hayden Thompson who is about to enter the third grade was asked about finishing college some day and if he would possibly become a school teacher. “No,” he emphatically responded. “I want to be where the money is!”

Samantha Scheid who is also set to walk into a third grade classroom said she thought she wanted to be a “basic doctor” or become a pediatrician “and help take care of babies.”

Martin Udavi, 12, is going into the sixth grade after attending Weston since kindergarten said he hopes to go into the building trades where he can be involved in tearing down old buildings and building anew – much like what was happening to his campus behind him. 

Amber Scheid, 13, is a competitive swimmer and has her eye on the Olympics in her future as well as becoming a swimming instructor. 

The student body will be sent to another Ripon campus during the yearlong construction of the new school.
