#4 School Installs Elevator with Tribute to Alumn

Number Four School is 101 and still having fun! On the 101st day of school this year, the school held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly completed elevator. Daniel Cornejo, a Number Four School alumni (and former kindergarten student of current Principal Ann Pedersen) cut the ribbon and took the initial ride. The significance of a former student returning, one who needed home instruction when his medical condition prevented him from attending school and who continues to require handicap accessibility, was felt by the group of administrators, teachers and community members in attendance. A plaque hangs in the elevator vestibule with a picture of Daniel from his kindergarten days and the quote from Henry Ford "If you think you can do a thing, or think you can't do a thing you're right". It certainly feels like a "right" that the 101 year old building is now fully handicapped accessible.
