Northview Grand Opening September 1
Construction and Renovation Complete
Dear Students, Parents, Community Members and Taxpayers,
On behalf of the faculty, staff and Board of Education of Peru Public Schools, I would like to invite you to attend the Northview Elementary School Grand Opening on Tuesday, September 1. We will have a formal ribbon cutting ceremony at 5:00 p.m. followed by an open house until 7:00 p.m. Lemonade and cookies will be served. We hope to see you there!
We are hitting another historical milestone as our great school district prepares to open our brand new addition and complete renovation of Northview Elementary School. Our PreK - 4 students will be served in a safe, clean and climate-controlled 80,000 square foot facility at the new 2100 Plum Street address. This follows just six years after the opening of state-of-the-art Parkside Middle School, a beautiful 95,300 square foot facility that continues to serve students in grades 5 - 8. Our students, staff, community and taxpayers are very fortunate to have this incredibly unique opportunity, and the completion of Northview marks the culmination of some very effective long-term facility planning, design, and construction over the the last several years.
Following are slide shows and a video tour that show our progress by month from the August 2014 groundbreaking through the August 2015 completion. Once you are in a slide show, you can click on the picture for a larger view.
This is a very exciting time for our community, school district, taxpayers and children. As always, thank you very much for your support of our children and our schools!
Mark R. Cross, Superintendent
