The Winston R-6 School District held a groundbreaking for its new school Tuesday morning.
Superintendent Brian Robinson says the school district took the opportunity to showcase its students at the groundbreaking.
Robinson explains that the new school has been in the works for five years.
He says the new two story, 22,000 square foot building will be directly to the west of the current school, so the two can be attached eventually.
Robinson adds most of the classes will be moved to the new building.
He says the construction costs about $4.3 million and is expected to be finished by January 2018.
Robinson says a tax levy increase approved last April is providing funding for the construction.
