AP Breaks Ground on the Skyline Vista Elementary Project
The groundbreaking of Westminster Schools’ Skyline Vista Elementary project was a festive one. Choir students began the ceremony by singing Christmas songs in bright red Santa hats. Hot apple cider and cocoa were served by faculty to combat the winter chill, and iced gingerbread cookies, in the shape of schoolhouses, were gifted to each attendee.
The school, designed by DAO Architecture, will be funded partially from the successful mill levy override in November. The new school will be built on the ground adjacent to the current Skyline Vista facility. Students will be moved into the new building in 2021, while the old Skyline Vista will be demolished.
“This is a proud day,” said Superintendent Pam Swanson. “As many of you know, at Westminster Public Schools, we place an emphasis on the most important day a student has; it’s the day after graduation. I’m confident that the students that roam the halls of this new facility, some of them here today, will play a significant role in the future of this neighborhood and community.”
Attendees were given Christmas tree ornaments, made by the school’s STEM students, to commemorate the occasion.
