Several exciting projects have been taking place since June. In just eight weeks, four rooms were added to Sunset Ridge Elementary totaling approximately 6,500 square feet. With more than 570 students expected at the school this year the rooms were sorely needed. Construction began at Glacier Creek and Kromrey middle schools this summer. Both middle schools will be adding fifth-graders for the 2014-15 school year to help alleviate overcrowding at all six of the district’s elementary schools.
The Glacier Creek project will add a fifth-grade addition to the southeast corner of the current building. Another gymnasium with two courts will be added to the east side of the building and three extra classrooms for music, art and career and technology will go on the north of the building. The project should be finished by August 2014.
Kromrey will be completed over three phases. The first will include a two-story fifth-grade wing, along with a cafeteria and other core facilities. That should be completed by August 2014. Phase Two includes a three-story wing that will house sixth, seventh and eighth grade students and will go on the far west side of the site. That should be completed in December 2014. The final phase involves demolishing a large portion of the current school and building a new gymnasium with three courts. That should be ready to go by the fall of 2015.
