River Crest: The countdown is on

With construction on the new River Crest Elementary School nearing completion, the moving-in process is in full swing.

Furniture and other fixtures began arriving last week and are being placed throughout the building as the finishing touches are completed by contractors.

The current enrollment of the district's sixth elementary school is 519 students, with a certified staff of around 46 and support staff 21, both full and part time. Some staff members are already at work, but registration for River Crest will continue to be handled out of Willow River Elementary on Fourth Street.

Meet the Teacher night at River Crest is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Prior to that, there will be an open house for all district staff.

A public dedication of the school is scheduled for Sept. 27 and will include activities for the entire family at both River Crest and Camp St. Croix, which will be accessible on foot through the Gateway under County F.

The school is located at the corner of County F and Coulee Trail.
