Grand Junction, CO - Orchard Mesa Middle School students will have to wait until January to move into their new building. But they don't have to wait to thank those who made the new building possible. 

Representatives from the OMMS Student Council gathered outside the new building this morning, Nov. 19, to thank FCI Construction workers for their hard work by presenting them with homemade treats, thank you cards, and a thank you banner signed by students.

The banner will be located outside the fence in front of the new school for people to see as they drive by on Unaweep Avenue. Student council members also got students to sign a second banner thanking community members for their financial support. The new school is funded by a $13.9 million state grant and $26 million from the 2017 Bond Measure.

Orchard Mesa Middle School is so excited about their new school and learning opportunities. D51 and OMMS appreciate FCI and the community for their dedication and commitment to help our students reach their highest learning potential.
