January - June 2018

March 2

Excitement is building as the construction of the high school addition is gaining momentum and the construction of the East End Middle School has begun. We expect to pour the concrete slab for the high school next week (week of March 5).

Take a brief tour of the new $25 million, 148,000 sq. ft., two-story addition to Sheridan High School in Arkansas! The new construction will feature Career Technical Education classrooms, including a robotics lab and agri-shop; additional classrooms to move ninth grade to high school; a new library/media center; new special education classrooms; a new cafeteria/dining area that will seat up to 750 people; and a new gymnasium, which will be large enough to host state tournaments.

Things just got a lot more concrete! We poured the first slab of concrete at the Sheridan High School construction site.
