Demolition begins on Meeker building

Crews will demolish the former Meeker building over the course of a four-week period that began the week of June 8. Facilities Maintenance and Planning Director Gerry Peters said work will proceed as quickly as possible so paving and landscaping can begin around the new building.

Good-bye to Old Meeker is May 2

Meekergoodbye1AMES–The Meeker Elementary School building may be made of bricks and mortar, but it holds memories of formative events that extend for several generations. Meeker students, staff, alumni and friends will gather at 2 p.m., Saturday, May 2, to celebrate and honor the old building before its last school year ends.

Principal Steve Flynn said the building drew strong loyalty long before it was designated as a Blue Ribbon School in 2013.

“The school has always created a close community where students have thrived and launched a solid foundation for learning for the rest of their lives,” Flynn said.

The “Good-bye to Old Meeker” celebration is an open-house styled event and the public is encouraged to attend.

The building will be demolished during the summer of 2015. In August, staff and students will move into its new replacement, which has been built on the same campus.
