  • Doors to New Library Open at Ward Elementary

    Ward Elementary School recently celebrated its beautifully refurbished library with a ribbon-cutting by Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne and Principal Franco Miele, plus students, parents, teachers and administrators. The library's brand new look was made possible by the school's more than 1,000 grade K-5 students who read 1,487,477 minutes and raised almost $44,000 during PTA-led Read-a-thons. Great job, everyone!
