With a brand-new, modern campus to replace its aging predecessor, Sarah King Elementary School has much to showcase when students, staff, parents and community members gather Tuesday night to celebrate $18.2 million in renovations under the 2010 bond.

Guests will have the opportunity for a self-guided tour after a brief opening presentation.

Renovation highlights include: 

· New modern school featuring 21st-century learning environment

· Art & music rooms

· Science and computer labs

· Special Education and Life Skills classrooms

· New expanded library

· New cafeteria, kitchen and stage area 

· Two age-appropriate playgrounds with sun shades (to come)

· Safety & security upgrades

Funding for the project came from the $515 million bond that voters overwhelmingly approved in November 2010 to finance a variety of improvements throughout the district, including major renovations at 22 schools.
