On June 3, 2015, Woodland Elementary School students and staff witnessed the project's "topping off" ceremony, which is the placing of a signed steel beam onto the building. Two weeks prior leading up to the event students and staff had the opportunity to sign the beam.

The project Groundbreaking Ceremony was held Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 10:00 am at the Woodland Elementary School. Aldo Cecchi, the School Building Committee Chair, emcee'd the event, with MSBA Executive Director Jack McCarthy and School Committee Chair Michael Walsh speaking. A good number of the community braved the windy but sunny spring weather to attend the event.
Afterwards, photos were taken of the School Committee, the School Building Committee, and the Design, Management, and Construction team, replete with hard hats, construction vests, shovels and dirt. Click here for photos of the event.
After a long winter and a lengthy wait for the snow to melt, construction activities have begun at site. Please reference the "Construction Updates" folder for scheduling and other information.
