The newly constructed two-story Roosevelt Elementary classroom mini-building opened its doors to students on Friday, April 20 and will be the site of a dedication ceremony on Monday, April 30.
The community is welcome to join Roosevelt Elementary students and staff, Superintendent Patrick Murphy, school board members, district staff, and the architect and contractor in a ribbon-cutting ceremony starting at 4 p.m. on April 30.
Guests are welcome to walk through the new classroom building following the ribbon cutting.
Roosevelt Elementary is the third of five two-story classroom mini-buildings to open its doors. Construction continues on the McLane and Centennial elementary school mini-buildings, approved by voters as part of the 2016 school bond. Pioneer Elementary School’s mini-building opened in January, followed by Hansen Elementary’s two-story classroom addition in March.
Each of the mini-buildings has eight classrooms, a music room, a commons/general classroom space for multiple uses, small learning areas between classrooms for small-group teaching and learning, a musical instrument storage area, and an administrative office and storage area. Each building also has a covered walkway connecting it to the main school building at each site, an elevator, two sets of stairs, and restrooms on each floor.
Exterior finishes and colors are designed to coordinate with the main one-story school buildings on the same campus.
