The groundbreaking ceremony last Friday officially launched construction of Dessie F. Evans Elementary, scheduled to open in the fall of 2019. Future students, district leadership, and community members gathered among balloons and ceremonial gold-painted shovels to recognize the significance of the event. On hand were School Board President Kathy Yang, School Board Director Maddie Names, Principal Kevin Hampton, Assistant Principal Kris Diamond, and representatives from @NACArchitecture who designed the school, and general contractor @GARCO Construction.
Per PSD Board this week is Public School Volunteer Week. Volunteers are an integral part of student learning, play a very important role in the education of students, and provide a valuable partnership link with our community. THANK YOU to the 7,900 who serve each day! #PSDVolunteerLove
