Dedication Celebration
And Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - Sunday, April 11, 2010

The community pride showed in Onekama on a sunny Sunday afternoon when the community took its first look at school renovations made possible by a $14.1 million bond issue. Onekama students moved into the new facilities four days ago.

The new area of the school includes a gymnasium that can be divided into two full-size practice courts; technology in classrooms that includes smart boards, document cameras, projection systems, internet, cable television, and dvd players; wireless internet throughout the school; a new kitchen which will be able to serve more fresh food and items from the farm-to-school program; a cafetorium with stadium seating for 300, rear screen projection, state-of-the-art lighting and sound; a band room; art room with a computer graphics system; and a computer lab for special education.

Improvements also included a computerized heating/ventilation system for the entire building; security cameras for the entire building; an upgraded public address system; and a motion detection lighting system for the entire facility. ~Manistee News Advocate
