The new building which houses Monticello Elementary School will be dedicated in a community-wide celebration on Tuesday, September 9.

Dedication services for the $10 million facility are set to begin at 5 p.m. Afterwards, an open house and celebration will run from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will include food, tours, and activities for kids and adults.

Six paintings by local artist Richard Russell will be unveiled at the event. The paintings will eventually be hung in the entry to the new school. Read about Russell on page 16 of the San Juan Record.

In addition, the “Flights of Learning” sculpture will be dedicated at the event. Funds for the life-sized sculpture by Bryce Pettit were raised in the community and by the students.

An additional unique feature of the new school is the old school bell, which sits prominently at the school entrance.

The new school replaces a building that was constructed in 1958.
