Greenwood (New High School Addition Bids - 1959)
Prin. Clifton Fonstad of Greenwood reports that Friday, May 22, bids will be opened on the construction of a new high school addition and remodeling of the present building for grade purposes.
Over 30 contractors have indicated that they will submit bids on this project. Mr. Fonstad states that 12 general contractors, 10 heating and plumbing contractors and 11 electrical contractors have indicated that they will submit bids. Bids will be opened at 3 p.m. at a meeting of the board of education.
"If favorable bids are received," states Mr. Fonstad, "the long-awaited building project can get under way very soon."
The plans drawn by architects call for a large two-story high school addition to be built behind the present gymnasium. This addition will include all high school facilities except the homemaking department, the cafeteria, and gymnasium, which will remain in the present building.
The addition will include seven regular classrooms, two science rooms, three commercial rooms, an agriculture shop and classroom, an industrial arts shop and classroom, shower rooms, a band room and practice rooms, a large library, washrooms and an office suite.
The present building is to be remodeled to provide nine modern elementary classrooms, a large cafeteria and kitchen.
"The project has been carefully planned to take care of the district’s high school needs for as long as can be predicted," Mr. Fonstad said. It also will more adequately serve the elementary children of the area, as well.
It is doubtful whether the project can be completed before the 1960-61 school term.
