Inspiring Excellence

Groundbreaking for Intermediate Center

The Carthage R-9 School District celebrated commencement of work on the new fourth and fifth grade center by holding a groundbreaking last Thursday.  R-9 Board of Education members, Carthage 2020 leaders, R-9 bond campaign committee members, central office administrators, building principals, patrons and local media gathered to commemorate this event. 


The project is expected to be completed in approximately two years.  Fifth and sixth grade students will occupy the facility for one year while the existing middle school is repurposed to serve seventh and eighth grades.  Upon completion of that project, junior high students will move to the expanded facility on Centennial, sixth grade will relocate to the current junior high building on South Main, and fourth grade students will transition to the new 4-5 center.
