School Officials Cut Ribbons on New Juban Parc
Parents Invited to
Preview Elementary Campus
DENHAM SPRINGS, La. – Parents and students who will
attend the new Juban Parc Elementary School next
school year are invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony
for the school on July 27 at 6:30 p.m., followed by
a special preview visit of the campus.
The elementary school event will be held in
the school’s multi-purpose building, following the
ribbon cutting ceremony for Juban Parc Junior High,
which will be held outside, in front of that school
at 5:30 p.m.
Parents and students attending the new junior
high school were given a “sneak preview” of that
campus last month.
Both schools are located on Brown Road, about
one and a half miles east of the Juban Road
intersection and near the newly developed Juban Parc
The property for the two schools,
approximately 41 acres, was donated to the school
system by Renaissance Development Group, LLC,
developer of the Juban Parc Community subdivision.
Voters in the Denham Springs School District
approved a $26 million bond issue in May 2007 to
fund the construction of the two schools and make
necessary repairs to existing schools in the area.
Visitors wishing to attend the elementary school
ceremony should park in the elementary school
Those wishing to attend the ribbon cutting
ceremonies at both schools may park at either school
and walk to and from both schools, or park at the
junior high and ride a school bus that will
transport guests from the 5:30 p.m. ceremony to the
elementary school for the 6:30 p.m. ceremony.
School officials, elected officials and
community leaders, as well as the architects and
engineers of the new schools, will be in attendance
for both ribbon cutting ceremonies.
Superintendent Bill Spear said both schools
will open to students on the first day of classes on
Teachers and school staff will return to the schools
earlier that week for staff development sessions and
final preparations of the classrooms.
Kathryn Blackwell, principal of Juban Parc
Elementary, said all guests at the elementary school
will be provided with a map of the campus for a
self-guided tour immediately following the
ribbon-cutting ceremony, and teachers will be on
hand to answer questions.
No tours or free access to Juban Parc Junior
High School will be available that day.
