Construction has begun on the new Sundance elementary school building, with changes already visible on the football field. As weather permits, says Superintendent Byron Stutzman, contractors Ainsworth-Benning will be preparing the construction site for the spring. The company has also begun to move its job trailers into place and will begin to remove such things as the block building, concrete that was used for track events, the goal post and the scoreboard, says Facility Manager Tom Necklason. “If the weather permits they will begin stripping the topsoil from the football field and stockpiling it out of the way. As soon as the permit is approved the contractor for the geo-thermal well field will be on site to begin drilling the wells,” he adds.
The Wyoming Army National Guard’s A Battery, 2nd Battalion, 300th Field Artillery is preparing for a mobilization to assist security efforts in Afghanistan beginning in August.
Your help is needed to keep the celebrations going after prom on March 14. As in years past, parents and the community have teamed up to provide the students with a place to gather once prom comes to an end, keeping them safe while offering entertainment such as mechanical bull riding, a photo booth, poker and black jack tables, and snacks. The Sundance Post Prom Committee is now seeking donations to help make 2015 another successful year, whether monetary or as door prizes. They can be fun items or useful items for students to take with them for college. Door prize donations can be dropped off at The Sundance Times or the Assessor’s Office. If you would like your item picked up, call Robin Seeley at 290-2663 or Trudy Materi at 290-0392. Donations can also be made to the Post Prom account at Sundance State Bank or sent to P.O. Box 592, Sundance.
