The Santa Maria-Bonita School District on Thursday hit a major milestone in construction of its newest elementary school near Enos Ranch, one that will help alleviate overcrowding at other sites.

When completed next August, the two-story, $51 million school will accommodate as many as 900 students in transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.
