Helena Public Schools begin construction for three new buildings

Helena Public Schools leaders called Wednesday a day to remember, as they kicked off the district’s biggest building project in decades.

They held groundbreaking ceremonies for three new school buildings, at Bryant, Central and Jim Darcy Elementary. The new construction was made possible by a $63 million bond, approved by district voters last year.

“This is a date to thank this community for making this happen – the first new schools in this community for 40 years,” said Helena superintendent Jack Copps.
