9th Street Elementary School and Para Los Ninos Middle School's Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on October 29, 2013. LAUSD Board Member Monica Garcia was the event's Mistress of Ceremonies. Student speakers shared their excitement for a new school, and parents commented on how appreciative they are of this new and much improved learning environment for their children.
Musical performances were provided by Inner-City Arts Para Las Ninos Chorus and by the students of 9th Street Elementary School and Para Los Ninos Middle School. The ceremony was concluded with a TIme Capsule Dedication.
Martine Singer, President of Para Los Ninos sent this message to the school and the community: "Be big. Be bold. Don't be constrained by the spaces you live in...you need to be inspired and dream big. And this campus can get you there."
