There aren't any lazy days of summer at Maryville schools.
From an internal face lift at Maryville High School to grade reorganization, there isn't one of their seven schools going untouched.
"This is a pretty ambitious project to try to complete in a three-month time span," said Assistant Director of Schools Mike Winstead.
Winstead said student overcrowding was putting them in a bind. "About 25 teachers didn't have their own classrooms. We were teaching in the teacher's lounge, in the cafeteria."
With Coulter Grove Intermediate School, which will hold grades four through seven, opening in the fall, the elementary schools will have some room to breathe.
The system is also taking away freshmen from Maryville High and adding them to the middle school.
But the grade reorganization means 72 teachers are moving classrooms.
"It's a lot of work. A whole lot of work!" said Coulter Grove staff member, Dawn Norton.
Maryville High will have a $2.5 million air conditioning system when students come back in the fall. Winstead said it will not only make students more comfortable, but also be more energy efficient.
The renovations are both inside and out. But the brand new football field at Maryville High School is creating the most buzz.
The state of the art field is complete with astro-turf and a jumbotron.
"It's generating a lot of excitement," said Director of Facilities for the district Richard Harbison. "We are 90% complete. Now it's touch up time."
With more than a month until school starts, the teachers, staff and administrators are hoping they can squeeze a little rest and relaxation in there too.
Coulter Grove Intermediate School cost the district about $26 million and came in about a million dollars under budget.
