Quaker Valley and Sewickley officials, along with middle school students, gathered outside the middle school on Friday morning for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, welcoming the reopening of the renovated school.
Prior to the ribbon cutting, students who are members of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts raised the flag at the pole outside the main entrance on Harbaugh Street.
The school reopened on Monday after undergoing a $26.5 million renovation. Middle school students in grades six to eight attended classes in other buildings during the construction phase of the project.
Superintendent Joseph Clapper called the work a team effort, and thanked everyone from school board members to borough and project leaders.
The district plans an Open House Celebration for the community from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 at the middle school, 618 Harbaugh Street in Sewickley.
