Ribbon Cut! The New Knapp Elementary School is Officially Open


On Thursday, Aug. 18, Knapp Elementary School Principal Tangella King, along with members of the School Board, District and school staff, the United Way of Racine County and local officials cut the ribbon to officially open the new Knapp Elementary Community School!

More than one hundred people gathered on the front lawn of the school eagerly anticipating the official opening.

“I’m so proud to be the principal here at the wonderful Knapp Elementary,” Principal Tangella King told the crowd. “But, this isn’t just my school. This is our school. And I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our community.”

Knapp Elementary will become the District’s first community school and will provide much needed resources for students beyond the classroom for their mental health, physical health and overall student experience.

After the ribbon cutting, the community walked the red carpet as they entered the school for the first time to take a self-guided tour. Check out some of the sites below.
