Exciting new changes are happening here at Caldwell High School! Monday evening faculty, staff, students and the community came out to show their support at the groundbreaking event for the 2018 Bond project.
The Caldwell High School Band kicked things off with the school song followed by opening remarks from Principal Ochs. Mrs. Ochs was thrilled to welcome guests to the beginning stages of campus additions including a new Career, Technology and Science classroom along with a new high school gym. Mrs. Ochs then introduced Superintendent Andrew Peters who was filled with joy and gratitude.
Mr. Peters spoke to the crowd giving thanks all around as well as highlighted the time and effort put forth by the school board’s Community Task Force. Built up of about 40 members, the task force’s involvement became a necessary factor in the development of the 2018 Bond project. After the initial bond failed, the Community Task Force took 19 months to prepare developments by performing a walk-through of every campus to prioritize the essentials required for adequate improvements.
School Board President Tripp Warren spoke next also thanking those that had made this moment possible. With a proud look in his eye, Mr. Warren expressed how astonished he was to be a part of Caldwell Independent School District history. Better late than never, the 2018 Bond project comes at a perfect time as Caldwell I.S.D. has been 21 years without any renovations or new facilities.
Keep an eye out for our next monumental event as we break ground for Caldwell I.S.D.’s new elementary at the current middle school location in early November 2019.
