K-M construction: What’s done and what’s yet to come
Now that school is back in session, Kasson-Mantorville students have to adjust to the construction. Even though a good portion of the project is complete, there is still a fair amount of work left to do before the entire high school project is complete.
Superintendent Mark Matuska says that, even though construction is still in full swing at the high school, the teachers and the students are excited for what has already happened and what is still to come.
“I sure saw a lot of smiles from some of those kids sitting in the classrooms today (the first day of school) and some even bigger smiles from the teachers who are in these new spaces,” Matuska said. “The learning spaces are a lot nicer, so I think the kids are going to be pretty proud of the spaces that they are learning in, compared to some of the spaces that we used to put them in. So, by putting a little pride and dollars into these classrooms, we have given them a learning environment they deserve.”
