Hastings Schools officials will host a groundbreaking symbolizing all of the upcoming upgrades and improvements to school buildings to be held June 20 at 6 p.m. in front of the Hastings Middle School, Superintendent Carrie Duits said in a news release.
“Our community passed a $45 million bond proposal in November 2015 for remodeling all six school buildings in the Hastings Area School System,” Duits said. The two most significant projects include replacing the 1917 portion of Hastings Middle School and adding a Performing Arts Center to Hastings High School.
“As a community, we celebrated the history of Hastings Middle School during a wonderful Commemoration Party on May 22. Now, it’s time to officially break ground for all the facility changes that lie ahead. Please join us for a short groundbreaking ceremony on June 20 at 6 p.m. in front of Hastings Middle School. Thanks to our community’s support, we are building a brighter future for all students!” she said.
