Superintendent Robert Logan was the master of ceremonies.

Robbie Farris, president and CEO of SFL+a Architects, complimented both boards on their commitment to energy efficiency in the building, which is designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

The school, which is slated to open in fall 2010, will serve up to 800 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
