Excitement is in the air at the Wasco Union Elementary School District as administrators and staff prepare for dual ribbon cutting ceremonies on Tuesday, July 30.
The first ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new James Forrest Elementary School on Margalo at 9 a.m., and the second ribbon cutting will happen at the new Richard Reding gymnasium at Palm Avenue Middle School at 10 a.m. that same morning.
According to Richers, construction is complete and the only thing not ready is the gym floor due to the striping. “But it will be ready on Tuesday,” he said.
“All the supplies are ordered and at the sites,” Superintendent Kelly Richers said.
At Tuesday night’s board meeting, Richers announced the new hires for the 2019-2020 school year, with the Back to School Breakfast Thursday, Aug. 8, in the Palm Avenue gym at 8 a.m. New teachers will be presented at that time.
