SPOONER, WI — The Spooner Area School District’s Board of Education held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of construction on its referendum projects. Spooner staff, administration, students, and community members gathered to learn about project components and the timeline for completion.
Dr. David Aslyn, Spooner Area School District Administrator, expressed gratitude to the community for supporting the referendum. “This is an incredibly exciting day in our District,” Aslyn said. “When these projects are completed in the summer of 2022, it will provide the facilities needed to educate the community’s children well into the future.” Aslyn went on to talk about how the upgrades will improve the District’s learning environment, infrastructure, and safety.
Spooner Area School District passed a $16 million referendum in April 2020. Significant projects include constructing additional classrooms and a cafetorium at the Elementary School, demolishing the small gym and performing updates to the Antholz Gym at the Middle School, and installing an emergency generator at the High School.
The community is encouraged to follow the construction progress through the District’s website.
