Bricks will be available to the public, June 28 and 29
The Oshkosh Area School District will be giving away free keepsake bricks from the former Webster Stanley Elementary and Middle School.
The giveaway will take place in the parking lot of the OASD Administration Office (215 S Eagle Street) from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28 and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 29. Three bricks per person will be allowed, on a first come basis.
Webster Stanley Elementary and Middle School closed at the end of the 2022-2023 school year. The school closing was a part of the district’s consolidation efforts as detailed in its long-range facilities plan. Demolition of the building began in early June 2023. Once demolition is complete, construction of the new Menominee Elementary School will begin, which will open in the fall of 2024. An overview of the district’s salvage and demolition process is available online at oshkosh.k12.wi.us/facilities/building-our-future.
Menominee Elementary School is one component of the first phase of the District’s long-range facilities plan, which received voter support through the success of the District’s 2020 capital referendum. The new elementary school will be located on the site of the current Webster Stanley Elementary and Middle School. Slated to open for the 2024-2025 school year, it will become home to students currently enrolled at Merrill, Washington, and Webster Stanley Elementary schools. Beth Galeazzi, current principal of Webster Stanley Elementary School, was named principal of the new elementary school in May 2022. Middle school students from Merrill and Webster Stanley will have previously moved to Vel Phillips Middle School which will open for the 2023-2024 school year.
