Ribbon Cutting Coming For 2 New Kennewick Elementaries
August 23, 24th the public will get to see, for the first time, the inside of two new completed elementary schools in Kennewick.
Fuerza Elementary, who's mascot will be the Lobos, will have it's ceremony August 23rd at 10am. The school was built on the site of the old Desert Hills Middle School at 6011 West 10th, Place, a block south off 10th Ave. When the old middle school was replaced by the new one near Cottonwood Elementary, the original building was razed to the ground, and Fuerza was built.
It will serve as KSD's first dual language elementary school.
Amon Creek Elementary will have it's ribbon cutting at 10am August 24th. This school has been built just beyond Northeast corner of the intersection of West Clearwater and Steptoe. It's addresss is technically 18 Center Parkway Richland, but it's in the KSD boundaries. Amon Creek created a significant number of boundary change ripple effects across the district, but will greatly help alleviate portable overcrowding at several other schools.
Both schools are ready to go and will be a part of the first day of school for the District on Tuesday August 28th.
