Midvale Elementary’s PTA has planned a community carnival to bid farewell to the old, 61-year-old Midvale Elementary, which is being vacated after this school year.
The Thursday, May 31 carnival will be held from 3 – 7:30 p.m. at the current school, 362 W. Center (7720 South). A special ceremony recognizing staff and PTA boards past and present will be held at 6 p.m. The event will include inflatables, games, food, and fun, including a Silly String Showdown. Most activities cost $1.
The new Midvale Elementary School, which is adjacent to Midvale Middle School, is 85,000-square-foot and covers 9 acres. The new school will have natural light in rooms and hallways.
The school also will have state-of-the-art classrooms, and plans also call for additional gymnasium, playground and parking spaces.
The Board of Education chose NJRA Architects to spearhead the project’s design. Westland Construction is the contractor.
