The final steel beam was placed on the south addition at Heath Middle School on Friday, April 14th, 2023, marking a milestone in the bond-funded construction project.
As the snowflakes fell, a group of students and District 6 staff watched as a crane hoisted the beam to the final slot on the roof of the addition.
The project, which includes a new wood shop, music room and office for Heath, is funded through the 2019 Bond Issue. Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch thanked the voters of Greeley and Evans for the Heath project, and for all the other bond projects that have been completed or are underway in District 6.
"So go home and thank your parents, your grandparents, your aunts and uncles for passing the Bond Issue that made this all possible," Dr. Pilch told the students.
The classrooms on the north side of the building are slated to be completed by August 2023. The new entrance and classrooms on the south side of the building are scheduled to be completed in November 2023.
