You will soon start seeing construction trailers and crews descend on the grounds of Sawyer Elementary School in Sturgeon Bay. A large portion of the $16.84 million referendum approved by Sturgeon Bay voters in April is going to fund an addition to be built at Sawyer Elementary School. When it is completed, the building will include classrooms for 4K students and a multi-use space for not just their youngest learners, but also for small community events. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says the good news for taxpayers is the bids for the project came in lower than expected.
With construction expected to start in the next week or two, Tjernagel expects the addition will be completed in time for the 2021-2022 school year.
