We are on schedule to open this fall. School will begin on September 6th for all students in the District.
We look forward to presenting this incredible project to the community at our community celebration and grand opening on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 4:30pm. Here is where we are at today:
Site work • Wondra Construction has completed the majority of their site work. • The Board of Education is preparing the permits and design for a sidewalk from the entrance of the Tanner Ridge subdivision along Hwy B to the new site. A Boardwalk will be placed across the wetland to connect the sidewalk with a sidewalk on the school property. The proposal has received endorsement from the Village and is awaiting DNR approval.
Interiors • The work inside the building has been progressing well. • The floors are in their final stages of polishing. • We expect lockers to be installed in the next few weeks. • The gym floor and equipment should be in place in the next three weeks. • The cafetorium is being painted and the kitchen equipment will be installed in June.
Athletic Fields • We have seen quite a bit of support for the athletic fields. We are 35% on the way to our goal of $2.2 Million. • The Board is working with our athletic field designers to begin work on the track and bleacher areas. • We have received a generous commitment from Wes MacDonald, a 2008 Johnson Creek Graduate, to volunteer his services to design the concession stand/restroom facility. • We hope to have other graduates step forward to donate time and talent to move the project along. You can contact Dr. Garvey at firstname.lastname@example.org . • A website is available at http://www.jconeteamonedream.com which provides information about the fundraising efforts, including naming rights, on-line donations, volunteer opportunities and events. • Our solicitation team would love to visit with your company’s leadership team, your group, or individuals to explain the donation and naming right’s opportunities. • On Oct 8, 2016, the third annual Run for the Fields will be held. We thank the many volunteers, sponsors and the participants who made the first two a success. • Donations can be sent to the District Office and are being kept in a designated fund. Donations can also be made on-line at http://www.jconeteamonedream.com. • See page 4 for a list of upcoming fundraising events.
Commitment As stated in each update, the new facility is a long-term asset for the community and your School Board and Administrative Team are committed to making the best decisions based on the most current information. Watch for another update in the next issue of the Jay.
