Working is continuing on the new gymnasium at Casey Middle School in Mt. Vernon. City Schools Superintendent Aletta Lawrence says the foundation is currently being laid for the building’s new gym.
Lawrence says the gym project is one of multiple projects being done in the district when voters passed leaving 23-cents on the tax levy.
Lawrence says the gym is expected to be completed sometime this coming winter.
The current gym was built when the main building was constructed back in the 1930’s. Lawrence says the school has outgrown the original gym.
