Ribbon Cuttings Held For Kingsfield Elementary, Beulah Middle Schools

August 31, 2018

Students have filled the hallways since the first day of school at Escambia County’s two newest schools. And Thursday, the Escambia County School District held official ribbon cuttings at Kingsfield Elementary School in Cantonment and Beulah Middle School on Nine Mile Road.

“This is an exciting moment for our school district…cutting the ribbon for two brand new schools,” Superintendent Malcolm Thomas said, giving credit to the Local Option Sales Tax for making the recent facility growth in the district possible.  The LOST was approved by Escambia County in 1999. “We have always been diligent with that money. We only use it to support building projects that are going to support our students.”

“We’ve got the eye of the tiger…..We are the champions, and you are going to hear us roar,” the Kingsfield Cubs chorus sang their new spirit song to the tune of Katy Perry’s  “ROAR” during the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Thomas said he asked several Kingsfield Elementary students what they like about the new school.  And the very first answer he received was not about multi-million dollar building.

“I like the teachers,” the student said.

“We build schools not to have new buildings, but to give our students the very best possible environment,” Thomas said, “Where they can learn and they can truly roar.”
