Boundary Options for New School Studied

Article excerpt

The Wentzville School Board has polished up the second of two alternatives for carving out an attendance area for the Green Tree Elementary School this fall.

Green Tree Elementary, scheduled to be completed this summer, will be off Lake Saint Louis Boulevard, south of Boulevard Park in Lake Saint Louis.

Green Tree eventually will have room for about 700 students, district Superintendent Ronald M. Berrey said. Green Tree will house 520 pupils this fall.
