On Wednesday, February 1, a new outdoor classroom was dedicated at the conclusion of the Terrific Kids program at Paris Elementary School. The Kiwanis Club of Greenville Eastside provided funding for the classroom, and members built and stained the benches that provide seating for the students. Treasurer Tom Currier had the honor of planting the sign at the conclusion of the dedication.
“We are very grateful to the Greenville Eastside Kiwanis Club for this great resource for our students. Their generosity in providing this classroom will positively affect generations of students at Paris.” — Principal David Wise.
Principal Wise also thanked Rebecca Hill, treasurer of Paris PTA, for her role in securing the funding. “Mrs. Hill wrote grants which ultimately led to securing funding from Kiwanis for this project. It would not have happened without her diligence and dedication to Paris!”
