Ground Broken On New Southridge Elementary School [PHOTOS]

Some Casper elementary school students will soon return to the site of their former school.

The last time Southridge elementary students were at west 29th and Knollwood Drive, was in the middle of last school year.

The old school building was demolished and now ground has been broken on a new building.

Principal Rick Skatula says it was time for a new building which will better serve the students.

“The old building served the purpose for which it was designed for fifty plus years. we just simply outgrew it, both in terms of size and in terms of its capability for us to do what we want to do.”

Second grader Alicia Guerrero says she might have a little difficulty adjusting to a new building, but she says there’s one thing about the old place, that she will not miss.

“I think it was just a little crowded to have lunch in a P.E. room, because when you’re eating you can smell some shoes from P.E. and socks.”

Third grader Mikayla Colling-McDonald says she’s looking forward to the change.

“There’s going to be a science room, a whole science room and there’s going to be two stories and it’s going to be way bigger and different from the last building.”

The new school building is scheduled to be completed and opened by August 2013.

In the meantime, students are at the old Westwood Elementary School.
