SUMMIT, NJ - In back-to-back ceremonies, Summit School District officials, administrators, elected officials, architectural firm representatives, parents and students gathered, cutting red ribbons celebrating the renovations and additions at Franklin and Jefferson Elementary Schools.
 
Speeches from students reflected the the appreciation and pride they feel for their newly-expanded and renovated schools, while District officials paid tribute to the foresight that Board of Education, Board of School Estimate, and elected officials -- past and present --  brought to the process which enabled the projects to grow from concept to completion.
 
Also lauded were members of the City staff, District staff, school staff and administrators, the architectural firm EI Associates, and others that kept the projects on-time and on budget, resulting in both facilities being ready for occupancy in time for the onset of the 2015-16 school year.
 
The Frankllin and Jefferson improvements comprised the majority of a $17 million capital improvement plan approved in May of 2013 by the Board of School Estimate that also included projects at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School and Summit High School.
