Students gathered to witness a moment of history at each of four buildings rededicated in separate ceremonies on Friday. School officials and administrators of Maple View Middle School, Summit Trail Middle School, Cedar River Elementary and Tahoma Elementary helped students cut the ceremonial ribbon at each location, and each building put their own twist on the ceremony.
"I'm very grateful to all the people who made this possible, starting with the voters, and including staff members throughout the district," Glaser said. "We care about you (the students) very much, and want you all to be happy and successful in Tahoma."
Glaser thanked her fellow board members, Tim Adam, Bill Clausmeyer, Didem Pierson and Tami Henkel, for their service, as well as Project Manager Cindy Darcy, Superintendent Rob Morrow, Assistant Superintendent Lori Cloud, and architects BCRA and Skanska USA for their work on each building.
She presented each principal with a commemorative plaque for their building, inscribed with the new name and date.
At Summit Trail, Student Body President Kayla G. cut the ribbon with her fellow officers alongside. Afterward, Garvin said, "Everything is so cool here, and I just love how everyone is coming together."
