Since voters approved the Marinette School District Referendum in November of 2020, the district and consultants from Somerville Architects and Engineers and CD Smith Construction have been working diligently to bring the Rightsizing vision to reality.
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.
Construction for the District's Rightsizing Projects began in July 2021. Contractors mobilized to begin breaking ground and clearing the sites at both elementary buildings. During the last two weeks of July, approximately 450 feet of foundation walls were poured. As the project continues to move forward, projects continue to be on target with projected timelines and costs are in alignment with the budget.
