Pueblo Raccoon

A raccoon was spotted in the Rose Garden next to the auditorium at Pueblo today.  Many Warriors were curious to see the black, white and grey creature nap in the trees.  Students used their mobile phones to snap pictures of our furry friend.

Pest Control was called to capture the raccoon and release it in his natural habitat.  After several attempts to trap him, the raccoon clawed his way up a 50 foot palm tree were he is napping peacefully.

The pest control specialist said the raccoon would climb down on his own during the still of the night and head back where he came from.

Here’s a short video of a failed attempt to trap the raccoon and him running into another tree:

New Marquee Project Taking Shape

In case you haven’t noticed, our 12th Avenue entrance has changed drastically over the summer.  The entryway construction has been completed and traffic is flowing nicely into Pueblo.

The other part of the project is underway with the construction of the new archway already in place.

The archway will be completed with red masonry as the base in the coming week.  Then we move on to the big one, our new digital marquee.

Stay tuned for updates and news on the completion of this project.

Construction Of New Entryway & Marquee

The planned construction of the new entryway and marquee on 12th Avenue has started. Construction crews broke ground on June 23rd with removal of fencing and asphalt. We are very excited for the new look on 12th Avenue.

First Glimpse At New Marquee

We just received the first concept artwork from the architect who took all of the Marquee Committee’s suggestions and created a spec for it.

It’s in black and white, but it give us an idea of what will be constructed on 12th Avenue.

Pueblo Palm Trees Get Pruned

TUSD Groundskeepers gave our campus palm trees a much needed pruning today. Our palm trees have grown past 40 feet, which require a big truck equipped with a high-reaching bucket lift to prune. This crew works together at all TUSD schools that require this service.

These palm trees have been around for quite some time. See if you can recognize them in the picture below taken in 1965.
