Kenowa Hills — No more temporary maze of walls at Kenowa Hills Middle School. This year, students put their backpacks in new lockers and attended class in newly renovated rooms.
Funded by the $67 million bond proposal approved by voters in 2020, Phase 2 renovation projects at Kenowa Hills Middle School were completed in August.
These projects included four classrooms, two science rooms, a new media center, lockers and repurposing the old auditorium into a flexible learning space that can be configured into one to three rooms.
“We’re really happy with how it turned out,” Superintendent Jerry Hopkins said. “We’re now in Phase 3, which includes renovating five more existing classrooms, two additional science rooms and the addition of a music wing with new band and orchestra rooms. It’s been fun to see.”
Upgrades made to the infant and child care wing of the Early Childhood Center marked the final stages of Phase 1.
Hopkins said Phase 3 projects are on track to be completed by January 2024, followed by the start of Phase 4 projects.
