Grand Junction's newest school building is on track to open this winter.

Mesa Country Valley School District 51 posted a video showing the progress of the new structure on Orchard Mesa.

In 2017, voters approved a bond issue to provide funding for a variety of school district projects including a new Fruita elementary school, adding an auxiliary gym at Palisade High School, installing a gym at Dual Immersion Academy, and the Orchard Mesa Middle school replacement.

An exact opening date has not been announced, but the school district says the project will be completed this winter and students will be moving in. These are certainly exciting days for teachers, staff, and students at Orchard Mesa Middle School.
