The event marked the official kick-off for $83.5 million of projects across District 49 made possible by ballot issue 3B. Last November, voters overwhelmingly approved 3B by a 2 to 1 margin.

  • Building an Identity: A name. A mascot. School colors.

    In the next few months, we'll break ground on a new elementary school just north of Falcon Middle School. A school is more than the walls, doors and roof.
