The District and consultants from Somerville Architects and Engineers and CD Smith Construction have been working diligently to bring the Rightsizing vision to reality. As the project continues to move forward, projects continue to be on target with projected timelines and costs are in alignment with the budget.
In an effort to support district-wide consistency and school spirit, the two elementary schools will be renamed. Effective for the 2022-23 school year, the Merryman Elementary building will serve all students in early childhood through first grade and be renamed Marinette Primary School. The Park Elementary building will serve all students in second through fourth grade and be renamed Marinette Intermediate School.
At both elementary school buildings, a large section of the exterior walls have been installed, with interior walls and hallways beginning to be established and taking shape. The recent warm Fall weather has allowed construction crews to continue to make great progress in building the rooms, hallways, and common spaces that students will enjoy in Fall of 2022. In November 2021, crews will be working to install bar joists and metal decking for the roofs at each building.
