Groundbreaking for John Adams Elementary To Be Held

Kingsport City Schools, in partnership with the city of Kingsport, will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the new John Adams Elementary School on Monday, November 26 at noon.

The groundbreaking will be held at the school site, located near 2346 Rock Springs Rd. Members of the Kingsport Board of Education and the Kingsport Board of Mayor and Aldermen are expected attend and members of the public are invited to participate in this special event.

Scheduled to open in the Fall of 2009, John Adams Elementary School is a 500-student PreK-5 facility located in the Rock Springs community. Plans to build a new elementary school at the site were launched in the Spring of 2006 following a donation of property in the Edinburg development. The Kingsport Board of Education selected the architectural firms of Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon and the DLR Group to design the school, which will feature a full-size community gymnasium and an environmentally-friendly geothermal heating and cooling system.

For more information regarding the groundbreaking ceremony, please contact the Kingsport City Schools Office of Community Relations at (423) 378-2123.

George Washington - West Kingsport
Thomas Jefferson - Northeast Kingsport
Andrew Jackson - North Central Kingsport
Abraham Lincoln - South Central Kingsport
Andrew Johnson - Southeast Kingsport
Theodore Roosevelt - (Northwest Kingsport annexation, formerly West View)
