Officials to celebrate opening of rebuilt Issaquah High School
March 27, 2012
A celebration marking the opening of the rebuilt Issaquah High School was supposed to take place this past fall.
But school officials felt it important that the public celebration happen after completion of the new Performing Arts Center, after landscaping was finished and the final touches were put on the building. With that in mind, even though students are nearing the end of their first year in the new building, a public celebration of the opening of the school is slated for 6 p.m. April 3 at the school, 700 Second Ave. S.E.
“For more than a century, this school has been at the heart of Issaquah’s history and culture,” Sara Niegowski, Issaquah School District director of communications, said in a press release. “Thanks to the support of every resident through the 2006 bond, Issaquah High is ready to continue that strong tradition in a new, state-of-the-art building.”
Besides the Performing Arts Center, other highlights of the new school mentioned by Niegowski include cutting-edge science labs and modern classrooms complete with up-to-date technology.
The celebration will include a slideshow of the construction, tours of the building, and student music and art.
The evening is free and open to the public.
