Groundbreakings and Dedications

The celebration of a new or renovated school is an important milestone for a school district and its community. Groundbreaking and school dedication ceremonies are exciting and memorable events. Groundbreakings are the symbolic start of a construction project. Dedications or grand openings celebrate the opening of the completed facility.

Let us know if there is a groundbreaking, grand opening or dedication ceremony scheduled for your school district.
