District dedicates facilities at high school

Hundreds of people helped the District celebrate with a dedication ceremony on Aug. 17 at Ray-Pec High School. 

The ceremony included current and past school board members, District and high school administrators, architecture and design professionals, and contractors. With a major addition and extensive renovation, the school looks and feels new throughout the building. Dr. Monsees said that approximately 130,000 square feet has been added to the school, which will now serve all students in grades 9-12. The public was invited to tour the school. 

Highlights include many changes that provide more learning opportunities for students:

  • Culinary arts kitchen
  • Coffee shop located in an open media center with learning stairs (pictured above)
  • Media production studio
  • Panther Market
  • Upstairs freshman wing, commons area, and office
  • Expanded stagecraft area for theatre, a new band room, and reorganization of choir, band and theatre classrooms
  • New art classrooms
  • Panther Learning Center
  • New Life Skills classroom
  • Dual purpose dome gym and storm shelter
  • Re-designed kitchen/serving/concession areas and expanded commons
  • Updated administrative and counseling offices
