The Mankato School District is ready to take the wraps off of its newest facility:  Prairie Winds Middle School.  The building was approved by district voters back in 2013, and will serve as the new home to junior high students on the district’s east side.

Mankato Public Schools Superintendent Sheri Allen discussed the road to the new school, some of its amenities, and the amount of growth the district is encountering.

She’s also excited for the public’s chance to view the new school.  There will be an open house on September 15th from 4:30-7:30.

Classes for Mankato’s K-8 students will begin on Thursday, September 8th.
