La Crescenta ES Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

November 2, 2018 – Glendale Unified School District staff, students and community leaders gathered on Friday to celebrate La Crescenta Elementary School‘s recently completed Classroom Building!

La Crescenta Elementary School’s 30,578 sf Replacement Building replaces an old bungalow and 14 portable buildings that no longer met the instructional needs of the teachers and students, and posed safety and access challenges. This Replacement Building is designed with flexibility to change as the curriculum changes. The new construction, which was funded by the Measure S Bond and matching State funds, consists of a 2-story, 16-classroom building featuring state-of-the-art technology and audio/visual systems, plus new playground equipment and an outdoor play area. As teaching and learning methodologies change, the school’s design will be adaptive to new instructional delivery systems. The Classroom Building design reflects the La Crescenta culture and the original adjacent WPA “Hispano-Moresque” architecture.
