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. 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 move to the new Vel Phillips Middle School which will open for the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Webster Stanley Elementary School students will attend school at the former Merrill Middle School building while the new elementary school is constructed. To learn more visit
