Erdenheim Elementary School
May 2012- Schade and Bolender is currently performing a Feasibility Study for Cafeteria Expansion at Erdenhiem Elementary School in the School District of Springfield Township.

We are in the process of meeting with parents, teachers and students to plan an approach for the expansion that will meet the current and future needs of the school.
