Public invited to see new school
Graysville Elementary School will hold dedication, tours of new wing on Jan. 10
Superintendent Denia Reese and the Catoosa County Board of Education will dedicate Graysville Elementary School to the community on Thursday, Jan. 10.
Changes at the school were aimed at improving instruction space and safety for students.
The old part of the school, which was nearly 70 years old, had pod classrooms that didn’t facilitate instruction very well.
That part of the school was removed and a new wing added.
The school also has a new entrance designed with security in mind.
Superintendent Reese said, “The new construction for Graysville Elementary School accomplishes the board’s commitment to provide safe and equitable facilities for our students. This project was funded with ESPLOST V pennies.
“We are so grateful for our citizens support for ESPLOST to provide excellent schools for our children, and we will dedicate the new building to the community and provide tours on Jan. 10, 2019.”
The dedication ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium, with a reception following. For community members who cannot attend the dedication ceremony, there will be student-led tours of the new building from 6:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Mrs. Reese said, “The GES faculty and students are so proud of their new school, and they are very excited for their families, friends, and the community to visit on Jan. 10.”
“The board of education is committed to facility equitability,” says Superintendent Denia Reese, “because they understand that parents want the school their child is zoned to attend to be equitable with all the other schools in the county. The new design for Graysville will improve safety and academic achievement while providing facility equitability.”
