During a quick break in the winter weather, students from Hidden River Middle School (HRMS) left their marks on the school expansion construction project in progress. Students rushed out before lunch to sign their names and draw pictures on a large beam that will become a permanent fixture in the framework of the new building.
In 2015, Monroe voters approved a Capital Projects Bond totaling $110,970,000. In addition, Monroe School District received an anticipated $20.5 million in State Construction Assistance Program funding and $640,000 in Mitigation Impact Fees, which in all funded roughly $132 million in capital construction and improvements.
This money was dedicated to building the new Park Place Middle School, modernizing Salem Woods Elementary School, modernizing and expanding Frank Wagner Elementary School and Hidden River Middle School, and for infrastructure and safety and security improvements throughout the entire district. These projects were determined to be the highest priority during our meetings with the community prior to placing the measure on the ballot.
