Browns Point Elementary School Replacement
Spend an evening in the new Browns Point Elementary to see firsthand what makes this school special to its students and community.
Browns Point Belugas kicked off their first day of school in their new building Dec. 4 with a line up of high-fives from construction crew members who built it and a performance from the Meeker Middle School band.
Wander and reminisce in the old Browns Point halls one last time, from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 8.
The finish line is in sight for the new Browns Point Elementary. Take a look at what the new building will look like, inside and out. It's expected to open in December.
Browns Point Elementary second-grader Jacob Levitt wakes up each day to a view of his new school being built, and he can’t get enough. He loves all things construction, including the team that’s building his school. So Jacob and a family friend devised a way to show the construction crew how he feels about the whole thing.
Browns Point students, including Finley O'Connell, Tristan Nicodemus, Carter Scharpp and Jayden Orton, have a permanent place in their new school. They have signed their names on a beam that'll be visible in the new building's staff lounge. Crews placed that beam March 14 then added an evergreen tree and American flag - a construction tradition marking the milestone of a structure reaching its full height.
Crews have been busy installing steel at the new Browns Point Elementary over the last couple of weeks, giving shape to the building. Steel installation will continue through mid-March.
