The Trevor-Wilmot School District gave the public its first official glimpse of the new addition to the Trevor building with an dedication and tours program Friday evening.

The addition added substantial classroom space to the Trevor building as well as new facilities for the library, computer labs, art, a dedicated cafeteria, a substantial increase in bathroom stalls and a new room for the band/music program. The project added enough space to have all district students attend classes at the newly named Trevor-Wilmot building. The building uses geothermal heating and cooling and aims to maximize the use of natural light.

The project was approved by a referendum authorizing a little over $11 million  by a 231 to 219 vote.

“Throughout this process, the board was guided by the principle: ‘What’s best for kids; how will this affect students?’ By keeping this in mind, we were able to produce an energy efficient learning environment which takes every advantage of natural light and provides ample parking for parents,” district administrator George Steffen said in his remarks.
