New equipment: The high school purchased a new 'Shoot-A-Way' practice device for the boys and girls basketball teams. Some of the Chromebooks at Fredericksburg, Holmesville and Mt. Eaton elementary schools will be updated for student and teacher use.
New building/renovations: Shawn Snyder, principal of Fredericksburg and Holmesville schools, wrote in an email that Holmesville "suffered substantial damage during the derecho storm in June," with portions of the roof being ripped off and some interior damages left behind. Repairs — including the addition of some new technology, ceiling tiles and flooring — were completed over the summer so the building could be opened for the new school year.
Construction of new K through 12 building behind the high school continued over the summer and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2024.
