Buchanan Elementary School students, parents, teachers and community members are celebrating the end of MAPS for Kids renovations and facility upgrades at the school located at 4126 NW 18 St.
The $3.7 million project includes a classroom addition and renovation of the core facilities. Buchanan Elementary School accommodates 462 Pre-kindergarten-6th grade students.
The school held a ribbon cutting ceremony complete with student performances, speakers and a concert by the Sugar Free All-Stars.
Scott Kaufman, Buchanan principal said, “What a wonderful day for everyone at Buchanan Elementary. We are absolutely thrilled that our renovation is complete and are very thankful for the support we have received from the citizens of Oklahoma City. Without them, our renovated school would not have been possible.”
Mayor Mick Cornett commented, “April is here and already several grand openings and ground breakings have taken place this year. Buchanan celebrates its completion today but more are yet to come as MAPS for Kids nears completion later this year. Congratulations Buchanan and thank you Oklahoma City citizens for making MAPS for Kids a reality.”
