Tour the new Westgate Elementary on Aug. 25

It's a new beginning for Westgate Elementary and we invite all Wildcat alumni and community members to celebrate with us at 10 a.m. on Aug. 25.

The new Westgate opens another chapter for a school that has served Kennewick School District students since 1952. Attend the ribbon cutting and explore the building following remarks by school and district officials.

Westgate was rebuilt at 2514 W. 4th Ave., the site of the original school. Staff and students have spent the past two years at the Fruitland Building as the old Westgate was demolished and construction proceeded.

The new two-story building has 60,500-square feet of space and 30 classrooms. It also has a gym, cafeteria, library, music room, computer lab, two reading rooms, and a playground.

The project was designed by architectural firm MMEC Architecture and Interiors and built by Chervenell Construction Co.

Westgate's new building was paid for by an $89.5 million bond to build five new schools approved by voters in February 2015.
