Jackson County Chronicle: The Black River Falls School District dedicated is new elementary school during a special ceremony Monday evening.
Hundreds of people attended the open house for Red Creek Elementary, which has been serving students since the start of the 2016-17 school year earlier this month.
Tours were available before the ceremony, which included remarks from local and state school officials and those involved in the design and construction of the building. John Ashley, executive director of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, complimented both the building and the community support that allowed it to come to fruition.
“It took my breath away,” Ashley said of his tour of the building. “You were thinking about kids. I have never seen a more kid-friendly environment.
“This is really a testament to the people of this community believing in your kids.”
