Project Status

  • New Thornton Design
  • Original Thornton Demolition
  • New Thornton Construction

UPDATE:  Construction of the new Thornton Elementary is officially underway after the groundbreaking ceremony was held Dec. 1, 2021. Read about the groundbreaking.

Construction of the new building is on schedule. On Wednesday, Sept. 21, the new building topped out. That means the final beam of the steel construction was installed. Read more. Current work includes roofing, installing roof-top units (RTUs), bricking, working on MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing), putting up interior walls and installing windows.

The 2019 Bond is replacing the original Thornton Elementary building, which opened in 1956. The old building was demolished in the fall of 2021, and the new building is under construction on the same site. The school is temporarily housed at the nearby former Knox Elementary campus until the new Thornton is completed. It is scheduled to open for the 2023-2024 school year.

Thornton celebrated its history at the end of the final school year in its old building. Read more.
