Construction on Moose Lake School is 60% Complete

New school will feature two gymnasiums, updated science classrooms, and a new childhood center.

Construction on the new Moose Lake Community Schools building is underway and staff and students say they can’t wait to move in next year.

The school is 60% complete and should be ready in plenty of time for the first bell in the fall of 2017.

The school cost around $30 million to build.

It will include two gymnasiums, updated science classrooms, and a brand new early childhood center.

Staff said they’re eager to move into the new space and are thrilled with even some of the smaller additions like more plug-ins in classrooms and updated water fountains.

“There’s a lot of excitement and buzz in the town about this building. A lot of people are driving by looking at it and the kids are very excited to get into a new building,” said Moose Lake Superintendent Bob Indihar.

The old school was built in the 1930’s and lacked some of the accessibility the new campus will have.

With that new childcare center, the new school will be the home to pre-K through the 12th grade.

Construction is expected to wrap up sometime in June to give staff plenty of time to move into the new building.
