L-C Referendum gymnasium dedication event
The comments were varied, but community reaction was overwhelmingly positive at the dedication event for the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room of the Luxemburg-Casco School District, held Sunday, Jan. 26.

“This is unreal,” was one thing heard in the crowd. Also, “So nice,” “So impressive,” “It’s been a long time coming,” and “It’s wonderful.”

District administrators and Board of Education members were thanked at the event by local residents for shepherding a process that began in 2015 to a positive resolution. “Many people came up to me at the event and said, ‘Thank you,’” Superintendent Glenn Schlender shared afterward.

Schlender opened the event program with his most important message. “It was great pride that we dedicate our new athletic facilities today, said Schlender. “It is because of you, the Luxemburg-Casco community, that our vision has become a reality. It is indeed a great day to be a Spartan.”

The Luxemburg-Casco School District undertook a long-range facilities plan in the spring of 2015. Following engagement with the local community, two referendum questions were put before voters in April 2018; both passed. Ground was broken in May 2019 on the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room, which represent a major portion of the $27.8-million referendum projects.

A new Middle School, relocated to Luxemburg from Casco, is the other significant aspect of the projects; construction continues on that building, which is expected to be ready for use in the 2020-21 academic year.
