Last Spring, Meadowbrook Elementary completed the construction on its fourth- and fifth-grade wing. The project included nine new classrooms, a break out space just off the cafeteria, flexible learning spaces, a loading dock, and bathrooms. Each of the classrooms has an interactive projector and flexible furniture. The heating system has also been upgraded to a more efficient floor-heating model. This project was funded by a bond referendum, which was overwhelmingly approved by the community in the fall of 2017. Meadowbrook Principal Dr. Greta Evans-Becker plans to have an open house in the fall so the community can experience the spaces.
“Thank you for voting yes,” she said. “These new spaces are wonderful learning environments for our students, and the space was needed!”
The bond referendum also included renovation and expansion projects at Hopkins High School, North Junior High, West Junior High, and Glen Lake Elementary.
