GUHSD reports progress on Prop. H and U school bond construction

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Grossmont Union High School District reports that progress continues to be made on campus improvement projects as part of the Proposition H and U school bond program.
Among the construction projects nearing completion: Grossmont High School’s two-story, 59,000-square-foot humanities building which includes 31 classrooms and a Career Technical Education facility for automotive technology with three service bays; Helix Charter High School’s 34,000-square-foot, 410-seat performing arts theater with dance studio, digital music lab, band room, choral room, scene shop, costume shop and recital rooms; El Capitan High School’s upgrades on restrooms and concessions.
In addition, planning is in various stages for a new physical education facility at El Cajon Valley High School and main building improvements at Valhalla High School, as well as performing arts classrooms, theater, choir room, band room, ASB offices and kitchen improvements at Mount Miguel High School.
