The Alexander Public School held its ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new expansion project on Tuesday, Aug. 18. There to celebrate were school officials and teachers, students, members of the construction company, and community members.

Construction on the new school expansion started on Wednesday, Aug. 19. According to Brandon Kasler, Project superintendent on-site with Kraus-Anderson Construction Company, his crew started taking the existing structures down, which includes the old tennis court and an old concession stand.
“Next week, we’ll start digging holes and we’ll start the excavation,” said Kasler. “Then we’ll be placing concrete the week after that. There will be three additions in this expansion project – an A, B, and C wing. Utility work will also start in about a week or two. We’ll have to bring sewer and water to the new additions here. We’ll continue to work to get those structures (A, B, and C wings) up this year and when school is out next year, we’ll move into the existing area to begin remodeling the inside of the current building.
