Last evening, Dr. James (Jim) Hardy, Superintendant of School District 467, sent out a mass email notifying the public that things have progressed enough in the construction of the new grade school that a ground breaking ceremony has been scheduled for all who want to join in the festivities. It will be held at 12:15 on Friday, February 26th, just to the north of the 1928 building (old junior high). Following the ceremoney, anyone and everyone is invited to go through the multi-purpose dome which is going up just to the north of the high school.
Dr. Hardy always invites people to call him at 620-375-4677 if they have any questions about the construction of the new domes or school in general.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Dr. Hardy for all that he has done to bring this dream to reality and to our county voters who voted in favor of the new school! To begin with, when this issue first came up, I voted against it because I did not think that it was necessary. Later, after I had had the opportunity to tour the grade school and see the evidence such as very large, gaping holes that went from the floor clear down to the dirt beneath, I knew we had to do something.
