District breaks ground for new school

Mahomet-Seymour broke ground for the district's new early childhood center last Tuesday morning, inviting the over 200 students at the current Middletown Early Childhood Center to join in the celebration.

Those students will be in grade school by the time the new early childhood center opens its doors in the fall of 2014, but they were still excited to see the school site on Churchill Road, south of Mahomet Public Library.

Dressed in brightly colored "hard hats" and wielding plastic shovels, they posed for photos with school officials, village representatives and staff from Ittner Architects and Broeren Russo, the newly hired contractors on the project.

The $14 million facility, funded by the county's one-percent sales tax for school construction, will replace Middletown Early Childhood Center.

The district purchased 74 acres for the school, in anticipation that future expansion can occur on the site.

"We bought 70 acres here for a reason," School Board President Terry Greene told the crowd on Tuesday morning. "Hopefully this won't be our last groundbreaking."

The facility is intended to support full-day kindergarten, an item that's long been on the district's "wish list."
