Wolf Creek Elementary School has a mascot and school colors. The school, currently under construction at 19250 Ridgeview Road is set to open its doors to students in the Spring Hill School District next fall.
The mascot will be Wranglers and the school’s colors will be purple and white with an accent color of green. Already, members of the Parent Teachers Organization have purchased a mascot costume for the school, named “Lightning.” A grand opening and open house are set for next month.
Community members are invited to the dedication and open house from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on June 24. The event will feature a formal dedication and ribbon-cutting at 6 p.m., and then attendees will be encouraged to take the “Wrangler Walk,” a self-guided tour through the building and grounds.
School officials anticipate approximately 400 students will attend the school next year. The 72,000-square-foot building can house as many as 528 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.
Wolf Creek Elementary School was part of a $39 million bond issue in USD 230. Voters also approved an addition to Prairie Creek Elementary School and technology updates throughout the district.
With more than $2 million realized in savings from the bond issue projects, the Spring Hill School District will set its sites on upgrading its flagship elementary school, Spring Hill Elementary School this summer.
Once the final school bell rings this month, workers will immediately begin renovations to the school which will include new flooring, paint, and bathrooms as well as new security upgrades.
