Mount Vernon School District will celebrate with a groundbreaking ceremony for the new elementary school. The ceremony will take place on August 24 at 1:30 p.m. at the site.
Dr. Carl Bruner, Superintendent, will speak at the event and will be joined by School Board Directors, district and government leaders, families and community.
The new elementary school is being constructed on an undeveloped site off East Division and is scheduled to open in Fall 2018. The 2-story design will house students in a building that maximizes site efficiency, keeps operating costs low and provides a technology equipped learning environment. TCF Architecture provided the design with input from the Mount Vernon School Board, staff, and Facilities Advisory Committee. Lydig Construction is the contractor for the project.
