    Ribbon-Cutting Events Launch Four Schools

    Just before school opened, four ribbon-cutting celebrations marked the completion of multi-year construction projects at Lincoln High School, Ingraham High School, Magnolia Elementary School, and Queen Anne Elementary School. Each event included congratulatory speeches, school tours, and the ceremonial cut of a long red ribbon.

    Magnolia Elementary

    Magnolia Elementary School's event on Thursday, Aug. 29, welcomed neighbors, alumni, staff, students, and families in advance of opening as a new attendance area elementary school. The newly modernized and expanded school closed in 1984, and hasn't been used by the district since 2004. The Magnolia construction was funded by the Buildings, Technology, and Academics/Athletics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy, approved by voters in 2016, as well as a Distressed Schools Grant from Washington state, and the state’s School Construction Assistance Program.

    Ingraham High School

    The ribbon-cutting at Ingraham High School, also held on Aug. 29, celebrated completion of the new classroom addition. This addition was funded by the Buildings, Technology, and Academics/Athletics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy, approved by voters in 2016. Read the story about the construction project and ribbon-cutting event.


    Queen Anne Elementary

    At Queen Anne Elementary on Tuesday, Sept. 3, the excitement of students, families, teachers, and staff was evident as the school returned to their newly expanded school. Students served as greeters and ribbon-cutters, and helped with the school tours following the ceremony. The voter-approved Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy paid for construction at Queen Anne Elementary. Read the story about the project.


    Lincoln High School

    Lincoln High School's ribbon-cutting event brought alumni out in droves, including two members of the class of 1940. The oldest existing high school building in the district now houses the newest high school program. For more than a year, the Student Design Team and Staff Design Team had worked to build the foundations for the new school, allowing it to open with sports teams, a student store, and the plans in place to form a student government. School Design Team members wrapped up their preparations by cutting the ribbon to open their new school. Read the story about Lincoln's modernization project.
