Region 16 to cut ribbon for new school


PROSPECT — Region 16 will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Prospect Elementary School Aug. 22.

The ceremony is at 10 a.m. at the school, 75 New Haven Road. The public is invited to the ceremony and to tour the school immediately following the ceremony.

The new school is the largest part of a three-part building project in Region 16, which oversees schools in Beacon Falls and Prospect. The project also includes renovations and additions to Laurel Ledge Elementary School in Beacon Falls and a new district office in Prospect. Voters approved bonding up to $47.5 million for the project in December 2011.
