The Dedication Ceremony and Open House for the newly completed elementary school was held in the elementary lunchroom on Sunday, January 30, 2000. Several hundred parents, staff, students, and other patrons were present to witness this occasion.
Elaine Gansen, K-6 Vocal teacher, and a number of elementary students set the mood for the afternoon by singing the song based on South Hamilton Elementary School slogan, The Start of Something Big.
It was standing room only in the lunchroom as patrons came to see their new school dedicated. Patrons not able to fit in the large room were standing out in the hallway.
Superintendent Mike Rogers led the ceremony by introducing speakers and by thanking persons instrumental in bringing this large project to fruition.
