The District and community celebrated the completion of another new building Friday with a ribbon cutting at Halle PreK-8 School. The festivities included a performance by the school choir, the Halle Cats.
Students from H. Barbara Booker School moved to the West Side building in February, and the Board of Education approved the Halle name. The property is on Halle Avenue and was formerly the site of a Halle School.
The ribbon cutting came a day after a similar ceremony at a new Oliver H. Perry PreK-8 School in the Collinwood neighborhood.
The projects are part of a continuing modernization projects funded by the state and local bond issues. Since 2002, CMSD has built or fully renovated 49 schools.
