Cromwell-Wright breaks ground on new gymnasium

A special ceremony on Monday to mark the beginning of work on the expansion of the Cromwell-Wright school gymnasium. Students of the district graciously helped break ground. Preliminary work is already underway. It comes as voters passed a $6.45 million referendum in February in support of the project.

Adolfson & Peterson Construction and Widseth Architecture are working on the project.

The space serves as a multipurpose-room. School officials hope the new upgrade will offer a safer physical education space for Elementary students. There will also be a full regulation sized court with “adequate” bleacher seating for spectators.

Superintendent Nathan Libbon told WDIO News noted that the project is significant for the community and also added, “I’m just really excited for the kids and what this will mean for them in the future, and just continuing to pour into this school and just make it a really good learning environment for many, many years to come.”

The school’s parking lot is also getting an upgrade. Plus, they’ll replace a portion of the roof and refresh the school building common areas.
