King CLC opens to public
Among the visitors that day were Marilyn Harpley and Rob Harpley, shown at top in front of the new school. Steve Davis, of Uniontown, graduated from King Elementary in 1972. That school was built in 1923, according to Akron Public Schools officials.
The opening of King CLC, located on Memorial Parkway, had been delayed for one year due to some construction problems. Principal Mary Dean and Akron City Councilman Rich Swirsky (D-Ward 1) greeted visitors, and the hallways were decorated with student artwork for the open house.
The school library is pictured below.
The new school, for students in kindergarten through fourth grade, offers a variety of new technology, including SMART boards in the classrooms. First-grader Will Morehouse is shown at right bottom looking at the equipment used for that technology.
Children attending the open house also were able to have some fun on the school’s new playground. Among those were first-grade twins Sarah and Quinn Meeker, pictured at right top.
