When Sylvania's new Central Trail Elementary opens in six months, it will feature a parklike setting that will include skylights and soothing earth-tone colors.

Construction of the 72,557-square-foot building has been progressing on schedule since last August. The building was designed with many updated technological and structural features.

The school will have 39 classrooms for kindergarten through fifth grade, including six special-education classrooms; an art room, a music room; and a computer lab. Other special features include a geothermal heating and ventilation system and translucent windows in the gymnasium.

A folding wall is installed between the cafeteria and the gym, which will allow the rooms to double as an auditorium. Alan Bacho, director of facilities and operations at Sylvania schools, said this plan has worked out well at Maplewood Elementary.
