Tonight, the public will have an opportunity to take part in a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Prescott High School.
Tours of the building will start at 5:00 p.m. and an official ceremony will be held at 7:30 p.m. There will be refreshments, music performances by the high school band and choir and participation by special guests.
“We are truly honored to celebrate this moment together with the community who invested in the future of the students and the entire community through this project,” noted Dr. Rick Spicuzza, school superintendent. He added that the new high school signifies up-to-date opportunities for students to learn relevant skills as they enter the workforce and higher education. But it is also much more than that.”
“Students from Kindergarten through adult now have space to learn and grow,” added Dr. Spicuzza. The old high school was successfully transformed into an Intermediate School for grades 3-5, along with classroom and meeting space for Community Education. There is also gathering space for the seniors in the Prescott area to meet.
It took a lot of effort and hard work to get to this point over the summer. Between finishing a major construction project, installing electronics and equipment, packing, moving, and unpacking, it was an impressive effort by all staff, according to Dr. Spicuzza.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the temperament, commitment, and excitement the Prescott School District staff put forward to make that first day of school a great start for our students.” Dr. Spicuzza said.
