New school in Palmer underway

Mark Warde, editor@ennisdailynews.com

Construction of the new Palmer Elementary School is proceeding on schedule towards its June 16 target. Also known as the Janie Barron Campus, it is slated to open for students in August of 2015.

Sitting on 20 acres purchased from Barron family, the school’s namesake were early settlers in Palmer. The city approved the passage of a bond in a vote in November of 2013 allocating the $15.2 million construction budget. At 65,000 square feet, the new facility nearly doubles the old elementary’s 33,000 square feet.
