A greenhouse being built at the Waterville School District. 

WATERVILLE — When students in Waterville go back to school next month, they’ll find a new greenhouse on the grounds.

The Waterville School District has been working with Cashmere-based Smith Excavation over the summer to construct the new building. While it’s not finished yet, Waterville Superintendent Tabatha Mires said she anticipates the build will be completed by the beginning of the school year.
