Public invited to celebrate completion of new Four Heroes Elementary School
Lakewood community members are invited to attend the grand opening celebration for the new Four Heroes Elementary School on Thursday, Sept. 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event will feature a brief program and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“I would like to thank Lakewood-area voters for their support of the 2010 school construction bond proposal,” said Debbie LeBeau, Clover Park School District Superintendent. “I am proud to welcome our community to the new school.”
On the morning of Nov. 29, 2009, four Lakewood Police Department officers were tragically killed. Four Heroes Elementary School is named in their honor to commemorate and acknowledge the dedication and sacrifice public servants make every day.
Dozens of police officers, firefighters, EMS and other first responders along with hundreds of Four Heroes Elementary School students, parents and community members will attend the event. Refreshments and tours of the school will be available immediately following the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Lakewood-area voters approved a $92 million bond in 2010 to build Four Heroes Elementary School and Harrison Preparatory School and rebuild Hudtloff Middle School. A committee comprised of staff and community members came up with the “Four Heroes” name which was approved by the Clover Park School District Board of Directors in March 2014.
The new school is located at 9101 Lakewood Drive SW in Lakewood. Attendees should turn onto Redwood Drive SW from Lakewood Drive SW. Signs and parking attendants will indicate where visitors should park.
