The West Fargo School District will be hosting a community thank you and open house event at the newly opened Freedom Elementary School tomorrow evening from 5:30 - 7 p.m. Any interested member of the community is welcome to attend.
Programs for the event will have a building blueprint in them, allowing community members to take a self-guided tour. Staff and students will be located throughout the building to assist anyone with questions they may have. The Freedom Elementary Food Service staff will also be there to provide cookies, juice and coffee.
An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will also take place at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate the school's opening, which occurred on Aug. 23. The ceremony will include remarks from Superintendent David Flowers, Board President Kay Kiefer, Freedom Principal Jeff Johnson, Lieutenant Governor Drew Wrigley and Senator Judy Lee.
Residents within the West Fargo School District are invited to attend as a way of saying thank you for their continued support. The open house provides an opportunity for residents to see the new school.
"Besides being an open house, this event is also meant as a 'thank you' to our community," district community relations coordinator Heather Konschak said. "Without their support, Freedom Elementary would not be here, and we would be short space for 565 students."
Freedom Elementary School is located at 401 26th Ave. E., just off Veteran's Boulevard.
