CAREY — It was a blue and white day for Carey schools on Friday.
The school colors were worn by many in the crowd, and also adorned balloons launched into a blue and white sky as a groundbreaking ceremony was held for Carey’s new school.
It also was a day of community pride.
With construction equipment grading the property as a backdrop, about 100 residents, teachers and staff came out Friday to celebrate the start of construction of Carey’s nearly $30 million pre-kindergarten through senior high school.
The building is expected to be ready for classes by fall 2016.
Courier reporter Jim Maurer will have more on Saturday.
