Updates to school begin this summer.
The bond election for Wylie ISD took place Saturday, May 12, and finally passed. This bond has been filed and re-filed for the past two years, but, until now, made no further progress. The summer make-over that the bond will fund will drastically change student life over the next two years.
This bond will not only grant the building of more classrooms, it will also grant us new sports equipment, bigger sports facilities and new uniforms.
“I am pretty pumped to get to see the new locker rooms next year and actually get to use something so nice,” freshman Hector Gonzalez said.
A new band hall will be built, making more room for the choir.
“The new band hall will open up so many opportunities for our band that were unattainable until now,” Band Director Paul Heuer said.
The bond will also give the theatre department a brand new black box.
“I am so excited, actually. We will get to use a real black box for the first time as a school and will be able to compete in theatre UIL for it,” Junior Aubree’ Keller said.
Not only will the bond grant facilities for band, athletics, and theatre, but will also expand the parking lots for additional parking, build a new health science lab, and a food court addition to the cafeteria.
