Ribbon cut at new Sharon elementary school

Case Elementary School
The ribbon was cut Thursday for the new Case Elementary School in Sharon.

After two years of construction, elementary students in Sharon have a new school they will enter this fall.

Case Elementary held an open house for parents and students Thursday afternoon for the new state-of-the-art building. Giant tiger paws line the ceiling of the school, and there are 24 classrooms with SmartBoards.

Students had been using Musser Elementary school while construction on the new school took place.

“It’s so nice. It’s state-of-the-art technology. There is lots of space, a music room, an art room. We have this mural behind us that blends the history of Sharon, our old building with our new building,” said Case Elementary principal Traci Valentino.

Students liked the new school as well.

“It’s pretty cool. I like the cafeteria and the art room,” said Brihauna Wilson of Sharon.

The students head back to class on Tuesday.
