Wells-Ogunquit C.S.D. officials, teachers, students, the WHS Band and various Wells and Ogunquit town officials assembled at noon on Friday, September 26th at Wells High School for a ground breaking ceremony to commemorate the start of the project to renovate and expand Wells High School.   As construction trucks rolled in and out of the school’s driveway, WOCSD Superintendent Ellen Schneider and seven other guest speakers spoke briefly to the audience just outside of the construction site.  The two-year, $26.85 million project was approved by Wells-Ogunquit voters last November.  The general contractor for the project is Arthur C. Dudley, Inc.
