The Hessel Hall and exterior of the school are under extensive remodeling, says Lawrence Woodmere Academy Director of Development, Craig Pinto. The renovations on Hessel Hall are attempting to remodel the old auditorium and replace its fixtures, as well as fixing any structural damage. The theater, which was built in 1929, has had problems over the years with water damage. According to Mr. Pinto, “The goal of this Hessel Hall renovation is to upgrade and update the auditorium to give our students and families the best possible experience while in Hessel.”
