Woodmore to break ground for new building
A groundbreaking ceremony for the new elementary school building in the Woodmore School District will be held May 30 at 1:30 p.m.
The new building, which will house pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade, will be constructed next to the present elementary building at 708 W. Main Street, Woodville.
State, county, and local officials have been invited as well as former students and staff.
Woodmore voters last year approved a 5.43-mill bond issue that will generate about $15.7 million in local property taxes and leverage about $7 million in OSFC funding for the new school.
Voters had twice before rejected similar 37-year bond issues.
