PROGRESSING – After delays from the recent rains, crews are back hard at work at Smithville School. Officials expect classes to resume at the original campus at the beginning of the new school year.

Work has begun on the band hall/music room while ground has been broken for the new dome gymnasium. Several weeks of bad weather have hampered the start of construction on the dome.
By summer, the new elementary school should be almost completed.
According to Monroe County Superintendent of Education Scott Cantrell, everything is on schedule for the Smithville Schools to be moved back on the regular campus when school starts in August.
“The high school work is complete, other than a few minor renovations such as doors and bathroom tile. It has a new roof, new HVAC, new floor, ceiling tile, new paint, and classroom curtains. This building, along with the other four buildings, only required renovation, not demolition and rebuilding,” Cantrell said.
Century Construction is the lead contractor on the project.

    This makes me PROUD to be a Seminole. We never stagger. We never fall. We sober up on wood alcohol. When we fight, we fight to win for the GLORY of Smithville High. Never give up and keep up the pressure!
