The Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District will hold two groundbreaking ceremonies at its middle schools next week.
School officials said a ceremony at Glacier Creek Middle School will take place at 1:30 p.m. and a second at Kromrey Middle School will follow an hour later on June 6.
Glacier Creek plans to add a new fifth-grade wing on the southeast side of the property, according to an MCPASD news release. Kromrey plans to add a new building on the west side of the campus, the district said.
The district said voters approved a $59.8 million referendum question in November to expand Glacier Creek and expand and remodel Kromrey. Under the plan, fifth-graders from all six of the district’s elementary schools will move to the middle schools starting in September next year, which project leaders said will help alleviate overcrowding at all of the elementary schools.
Construction at both sites will begin in mid-June, shortly after school is completed.
