The new Windom Elementary will enable the district to move 4th and 5th graders out of the district's middle school.

The Windom (Minn.) school district has completed construction of the $22 million Windom Elementary School.

The Grand Forks Herald reports 77,090-square-foot, stand-alone K-5 elementary school alleviates crowding, and provides additional classrooms, flexible learning areas, and safety and security.

The additional space enables the district to move fourth- and fifth-grade students out of the existing middle school.

A music room, art room, media center, student commons and physical education areas were added along with new administration and kitchen areas.

Funding for the new facility came from a $23.9 million bond referendum approved by voters In May 2018.

In addition, a $2 million remodel of the middle/high school has provided a 7,000-square-foot precast addition that connects to the existing Ag and Metal shop along the north side of the building. The project also remodeled the existing shop classrooms.
