Students at State Street Elementary joined school district and city officials in a ribbon cutting at State Street on January 17th. A multi-million dollar construction project added multiple classrooms, a gymnasium, black box theater and office area that connected State Street with nearby Chase Middle School. State Street and Chase have been designed as signature schools with an emphasis on the performing arts.
School board members held their meeting at State Streets. Students in several singing groups performed during the meeting while other students put on a short play.
Last fall, a ribbon cutting was held at Ross Elementary to celebrate a construction project that added classrooms to the school and connected it with Eisenhower Middle School. Ross and Eisenhower are also a signature school with the focus on music.
