By the end of next year, Grange Middle School students will no long have to eat lunch out in the heat of a late spring day or the rains of mid-January.
They will also have a modernized and larger library, a new locker room, space for an innovation lab for programs such as their robotics, and, for the adults, more parking.
That is the bottom line for the $23 million project that broke ground Thursday with students, educators, parents and local officials turning the first dirt.
Fairfield-Suisun School District Superintendent Kris Corey described the year-long project as one of the forefront projects that is being funded by the Measure J bond funds.
