Families come together to talk about future of Lake Elmo
About 20 people attended a recent conversation to learn about the projected enrollment growth in the district and its impact on Lake Elmo Elementary. During a short presentation, district leaders presented the possibility of replacing our 100+ year old building with a larger, new school somewhere in Lake Elmo. Because the largest area of growth is occurring in the southern part of Lake Elmo, it is anticipated a new building would be located closer to Interstate 94. View the presentation.
Participants also had the opportunity to share their dreams/ideas, needs and priorities for a new Lake Elmo. They talked about classroom learning spaces, green/outdoor spaces and specialty spaces (like a media center, art and music classrooms and gathering spaces).
The feedback collected during the session will be shared with a Facilities Planning Team, which is meeting this spring to identify priorities for a facilities improvement plan. Additional conversations will be held this summer to allow for more feedback from our school community.
