Center Grove dedicates Walnut Grove Elementary

Nearly 100 people gathered in the cafeteria of Walnut Grove Elementary to dedicate the new school on Saturday, August 3, 2019. Those gathered heard from Carol Tumey, School Board President; Dr. Rich Arkanoff, Superintendent; Terry Lancer, Lancer+Beebe Architects; and Brian Proctor, Principal.
"This building will be used by thousands of students for many, many years," Dr. Arkanoff told the crowd. "It is designed to inspire learning and creative thinking, while being safe, functional, and fiscally responsible."
"We did a lot of research and  pulled together teams of teachers and leaders in each area to provide input on designs for everything from classrooms and shared spaces to lunchrooms and traffic flow," said Brian Proctor. "We are all thankful for the School Board and our community for providing us with such a wonderful building for our students."
