Ludington Schools to break ground on new elementary.


By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

LUDINGTON — Ludington Area School District will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, March 6, 2020 at 10 a.m. to celebrate the start of construction on the district’s new elementary school, part of the $100 million bond issue passed by the community in May of 2019.

The event will begin in L.F. Peterson Auditorium with a song by the children’s choir, followed by several key speakers, including Superintendent Jason Kennedy, Board of Education President Steve Carlson, and one of the board of education members from 1999 when the property was purchased.

A school bus will then transport interested guests to the future construction site for a ceremonial earth-turning celebration and photo opportunity. The event will end back at the high school with refreshments in the cafeteria.

“The next few years are going to be very exciting for Ludington Area Schools,” Kennedy said of the upcoming school improvements. “We are deeply grateful to the community for its support of this exciting improvement to our schools. Officially kicking off the project with this groundbreaking ceremony that involves our students, families, and staff should be a lot of fun, and will get everyone even more excited about the improvements to come.”

In total, the projects will focus on creating safe and modern schools and include a new elementary school, major renovations and additions to the middle school and high school, and improvements to athletic facilities, arts venues, vocational and skilled trades teaching spaces, and transportation, Kennedy said.

Project partners include construction management firm The Christman Company and project architect GMB Architecture and Engineering. For more information about Ludington Area Schools and this project, visit the district’s website at:
