If teaching kids is an investment in the future, providing them with a safe, functional place to learn is part of that investment. That was the opinion shared by a group of parents, educators and policymakers who attended an open house for the new Slade Elementary School on Thursday.

The new school building on East Shield Street was the result of years of planning and advocacy to gather enough money to complete the project. Now, the new school stands as a welcoming and colorful place for students to learn and grow.
