Open house for rebuilt Sunnycrest Elementary School

From staff reports:

The public is invited to attend an open house at the newly re-built Sunnycrest Elementary School from 7 to 8 p.m. Sept. 28.

Sunnycrest was originally built in 1965. It was torn down and rebuilt between June 2010 and August 2011, using funds approved from a 2007 bond measure. Located at 24629 42nd Avenue South, on Kent’s West Hill, the new building is described as a “jewel of a school” in an announcement from Federal Way Public Schools.

The rebuilt school accommodates new instructional techniques, such as multi-age groupings, looping, teacher collaboration and small learning communities. The new design also allows for flexibility as research continues to develop for effective teaching techniques.
