BRISTOL – The City of Bristol and the Bristol Board of Education are inviting the Bristol community to come out for the Memorial Boulevard Intradistrict Arts Magnet School Beam Signing Ceremony Wednesday.
During the ceremony the public will be able to sign their name on the final support beam for the new building.
“This is a milestone in the renovation and restoration of the Memorial Boulevard building,” said Deputy Superintendent Michael Dietter, chairman of the project’s building committee in a release. “Members of the building committee, D’Amato+Downes, and QA+M Architecture welcome all community members to join us in celebrating this moment.”
The ceremony will also include updates on the construction progress and timeline.
The Memorial Boulevard Intradistrict Arts Magnet School will open in 2022, grades six through eight will attend fulltime at the new campus. Students in grades nine to 12 will take their academic core requirements at their home high school and then choose a pathway of electives to take at the magnet school.
“All students will receive discipline-based academic coursework during half of each day,” said Dietter in a previous interview.
Arts magnet courses will include creative construction; visual arts; musical arts; television, video and theatrical production; entertainment, sports and event management; and marketing and communications.
The ceremony will begin at 4:15 p.m. and all attendees are being asked to use the construction entrance off South Street. Once parked, you will need to report to the construction trailer.
