Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New PreK-12 Campus Draws Thousands of Guests, Becomes Historic Community Event


Berkshire Local Schools families, friends, school district leaders, students, parents, local, county and statewide elected officials turned out in droves to commemorate the formal grand opening of the new PreK-12 facility on Tuesday, August 9th at its new location. Guests and supporters populated the parking area and lawns in front of the Middle and High School entrance to witness Superintendent John Stoddard and Board President John Manfredi welcome participants with remarks and a timeline of events that led to this monumental moment. The marching band played the National Anthem and the district fight song, and cheerleaders and other performers greeted the community as they approached. The Berkshire Board of Education then officially cut the ribbon, and welcomed the community inside the facility. Once inside, the community had an opportunity to walk the halls of the new facility, and also to participate in a variety of hands on, project-based learning activities in classrooms and collaborative spaces. In all, the evening was historic in nature as thousands of participants helped to commemorate the opening of this new PreK-12 facility, which has taken more than a decade in planning, community support through the bond issue, construction, and the final touches. Berkshire Schools would like to thank the community for the massive turnout at the ribbon cutting ceremony and the endless support throughout this project.
