Trevor-Wilmot School District officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday evening for the new Trevor School addition.

The 65,000-square-foot addition will house new classroom space for the district’s primary grades and special classes such as art and music, a new gym and a new library, said George Steffen, district administrator. When completed, which could be as soon as late next summer, the addition will allow the district to house all students in the  Trevor building. Currently, grades through second attend class at the Wilmot Primary Center in Wilmot, the former Wilmot Grade School.

The addition was approved by a referendum last November authorizing $11.3 million in spending on the new space and upgrades to the current Trevor building. Steffen and other speakers at Tuesday’s ceremony praised the community’s vision and courage in approving the referendum in tough economic times.

Steffen said a more elaborate event will be held when the building is complete, perhaps combined with back-to-school events like open house next summer.
