Meeker Elementary hosts community open house

Meeker Elementary School, which spent a year displaced by a flood, is inviting the community to see its new learning spaces at a Community Open House, to be held from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, January 30 at the school, 2221 28th Avenue.

In November 2017, Meeker Elementary School was flooded following a water main break near the school. The school was covered with water and mud. After experts inspected the school, it became apparent the building could not be inhabited until the interior was removed and rebuild.

Meeker students were relocated to Generations Church a few blocks from the school for the remainder of the 2017-18 school year.

After a complete rebuilding of the interior of the school, Meeker students stared back in August 2018. Now, the community is invited to see the new learning spaces at Meeker, and help bring a positive closure to the flood.

“We are very grateful to many, many individuals and groups in the community who assisted us and our students during this difficult time,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “We hope all those who reached out to us, those who supported our staff and students in many ways, can stop by and see the beautiful learning spaces that have been created from what was a really horrible event.”

There will be a brief program at 5 p.m. Attendees are invited to tour the school either before or after the program.
