Canyons School District, with the help of Midvale City and school leaders, students and parents, will break ground on the new Midvale Elementary School on Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011, at the school’s new site, 7852 S. Pioneer St. (310 West). The celebration is open to the public and will begin with an 8:30 a.m. social. The groundbreaking is scheduled for 9 a.m.
The new Midvale Elementary School will be built adjacent to Midvale Middle School and is expected to be completed in late 2012. The rebuilding of the 61-year-old school is one of the first five construction projects approved under a $250 million bond voters supported in June 2010. It also marks Midvale Elementary's first-ever significant upgrade.
