8/2018 Groundbreaking begins construction of new Cannon Ball Elementary School
On Wednesday, August 15, at 4:30 p.m., the Solen School District #3, Consolidated Construction Co. Inc. and HKG Architects celebrated the groundbreaking of a new elementary school building for Cannon Ball, North Dakota, replacing a more than 85-year-old structure that is well past its prime. The federal government allocated $5.3 million in a U.S. Department of Education Impact Aid Grant to build the school on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to bring existing facilities up to today’s educational standards.
The project, which is expected to be completed in August of 2019, will be a 34,101 square foot school, located just to the southwest of the existing building. The structure will be a pre-engineered steel building to include modern classrooms, upgraded technology, improvements in student safety and an improved learning environment.
