Administrators, students, and board members took turns knocking down walls to make way for a variety of school improvements and additions.

    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. It's about the students and educators working and learning together each day. Having a name, a mascot, and school colors to proudly wear is an important part of the identity of any school.
