The Elizabethtown Area School District plans to hold a community-wide informal open house of the newly renovated and expanded Bainbridge Elementary School on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The open house will be held prior to the regularly scheduled school board meeting, which will be held at the school as well beginning at 6 p.m. As part of the open house, the school will host any interested stakeholder including students, parents, and community members for self-guided tours of the new facility.
Set to open for the beginning of the school year, Bainbridge Elementary offers bright learning spaces, classrooms that connect for collaborative learning, a cafeteria that is separate from the gymnasium, an outdoor learning space, a new playground, and reconstructed bus and parent drop off points.
In addition to the community-wide informal open house, the school has set its date for two other back-to-school events. On Thursday, Aug. 23, current Bainbridge Elementary students and their families are invited to the annual elementary open house where they will have opportunity to meet teachers, get acclimated with the school, and prepare for the new school year that begins Aug. 27. This event will be held from 2:15 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. On Thursday, Sept. 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Bainbridge Elementary School will hold its annual back-to-school parent night. Back-toschool parent night is a second opportunity for parents to meet the teachers and administrators, to see their child’s classroom and special area rooms, and to learn first-hand valuable information to make the school year a success.
