  • Groundbreaking Ceremony

    Posted by Carolyn Stephen on 5/16/2018

    On May 15, 2018 we held a groundbreaking ceremony for Grand Mountain School. The event was a way for the district and the community to mark the beginning in the construction of the new school. This was a momentous occasion as Grand Mountain School is the first new school for the district in 22 years. 

     

    Our partners LKA Partners and Nunn Construction were present during the ceremony, along with our Board of Education, district administrators, new principal Brian Pohl, and several members of our community. It is thanks to everyone, especially our community, that this ceremony could happen for the new school.

     

    During the ceremony there were four key speakers:

    • Superintendent Scott Campbell
    • Nunn Construction Tyson Nunn
    • Board of Education President Charron Schoenberger
    • New Principal Brian Pohl

     

    Each speaker had inspirational words and hope for the future of Grand Mountain School. It is exciting to see the construction of the new school headway as Tyson Nunn states, "The most rewarding part of a construction project like Grand Mountain School is taking a blank site and turning it into a 21stcentury learning environment for the students of Widefield. We are grateful for our partnership with WSD-3 and look forward to building Grand Mountain on time and to the quality standards of the district."

     

    Plans for the new school have been in talks for years as LKA Partners Andy Lewis states, "For 25 plus years I have worked on small projects with Widefield, so it is increibly gratifying to be working on a large project like this. It has been a long time coming and great to see it coming along."

     

    The district is excited for Grand Mountain School and Charron Schaenburger recalls at the ceremony, "It's been a wild roller-coaster ride but today marks a beginning of the reality of Grand Mountain School." Along with the new school our chosen principal, Brain Pohl, is hopeful and states "What a great opportunity to be a part of this community and it is truly something special. I can't wait to get started in this work."

     

    We thank the community for their votes to let this happen and please look forward for more updates in the future.

  • School Name & Groundbreaking

    Posted by Carolyn Stephen on 4/20/2018

    New School Name

    The name for the new PreK to 8th grade school has been decided and is now Grand Mountain School. We thank the Naming Committee for their work in gathering community input and following board guidelines.

     

    Groundbreaking

    A Groundbreaking Ceremony will take place for Grand Mountain School on the construction site on May 15, 2018 at 10 A.M. The ceremony will be a great way to introduce Grand Mountain School as the first school to be built in our district in 22 years. Due to limited access to the site, the district will post a video and photos of the event for everyone to see.
