Construction equipment is now on site at the Brookfield property home to a future pre-kindergarten-through-fifth-grade school. The town is preparing for the building of the new Candlewood Lake Elementary School. Ground breaking is not expected until later in the Spring, but a perimeter fence has been put up around the site of the school to replace Huckleberry Hill and Center schools. 5th graders will be moved out of the portable classrooms outside Whisconier Middle School into the new school. The building is expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2022 school year. Brookfield residents approved little more than 78-million dollars for the project, with $16.7 million to be reimbursed by the state. Families were surveyed on a possible name for the new building, with the Board of Education making the final decision.
