W.T. LEWIS CUTS THE RIBBON ON EXPANSION
With kids’ safety scissors in hand, scores of students, school leaders and dignitaries marked the completion of the classroom wing additions at W.T. Lewis Elementary School by snipping three giant yellow ribbons stretched across each new pod.
An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held Friday, April 4, that a large crowd of parents and others attended. Boys Scouts from W.T. Lewis posted the colors and led the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by remarks about the school by Student of the Year Madelyn Frentress. The fifth grader pointed out W.T. Lewis has been a Top Performing School since its opening in 2008 and invited guests to “step into our vision.”
Principal Lisa Burns said the new classroom wings are more than merely brick and mortar; they also serve as a source of renewal for students and faculty. Bossier Schools’ Superintendent D.C. Machen mentioned the ribbon cutting marked a milestone.
“It will signal the completion of the first major project in our 2012 school construction program. And thanks to the public’s support, it won’t be the last ribbon cutting we will hold over the next 10 years.”
Machen cited W.T. Lewis as one of the fastest growing elementary schools in the parish, adding the expansion will give it much-needed space to better accommodate the demands of a continually growing student body.
“We can all appreciate the fact this project also came in under budget and on time. Bossier Schools will continue to be diligent stewards of parish taxpayer dollars,” Machen added.
Following the choral offertory “Spring In My Step” by W.T. Lewis second graders, members of the Student Council led guests on tours to show off the new, brightly lit and painted classrooms.
Teachers will move into the classrooms following state assessment testing and have time to get their rooms ready before school lets out for the year. Students will enjoy the new classrooms and music room come Fall 2014.
