  • The “Forest Walk,” or the main hallway at WRNMS, will house both the cafeteria and the library. Dr. Stoltenberg explains how the rules are going to be the same at WRNMS as they are at the current middle school, “We go through and read the rules/policies of the handbook every year, so we ensure that the rules/policies will be the same.”

  • This will be the new journalism room. Mr. Chesmore, upcoming assistant principal at Washburn Rural North Middle School, is very excited about switching to the new middle school. He believes it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, but it is bittersweet to leave all the teachers he has worked with.

  • Big windows in the hallway will provide lots of natural light. WRNMS is working towards creating the most exceptional branding for WRNMS. “The idea of starting all new sports programs with uniforms, mascots, and all the branding is super exciting,” said Mr. Chesmore.

  • This is a courtyard between two grade level spaces. Creating natural light was an important part of the design of the building.

  • This is another view of the “Forest Walk.”

  • The outdoor space will include a track, a football field, and a tennis court located on the north end of the building.

  • The music rooms are located near the gym and are linked together.

  • Dr. Stoltenberg is excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity but will miss the people he works with. “I am very excited for the change and the opportunity… though it is bitter-sweet,” said Dr. Stoltenberg.

  • This is a courtyard area between team pods. Superintendent Dr. Scott McWilliams loves being a part of this bond project of building the new middle school, “I love it, it’s absolutely amazing because when we’re finished it’s going to look really good.”

  • Construction workers work on the New Middle school everyday, 42 hours a week. “We work every day, and there are about 100 workers each day,“ district technology specialist Patrick Clear said.

  • This is the future site of the track. The school board is working to ensure equality among the two middle schools, “Kids at WRMS will have the same access to the same opportunities as kids at the WRNMS, while building the new school we have also been trying to update the current middle school, like incorporating natural lighting and things like that.” Dr. Stoltenberg said.

  • This is the future site of a parking lot.
