Bond Construction Progress at PCS

In 2019, our amazing community voted “YES” and passed a $49 million bond. Since its passing, we have enhanced Renaissance High School/our Community Center and completed a renovation/addition at Plainwell Middle School. Next up, construction is underway on a new pool and gymnasium. This project will be the new home to Trojan athletics beginning fall 2024. We are excited to share this live feed where our community can stay tuned to the construction progress. Check back as we continue to complete this amazing project for the Plainwell students and community! Once again, THANK YOU to our amazing community for your ongoing support of PCS!
