School district staff met last Friday in the St. Helena Performing Arts Center at St. Helena High School, some of them getting their first look inside the $14.5 million building.
New employees were introduced, and longtime staff members were recognized for reaching milestones in their years of service. Friday featured a full day of staff development, as the school district prepared for the first day of school on Wednesday, Aug. 17.
The school district is planning an official grand opening celebration for the new Performing Arts Center, on a date to be determined.
Francesca Menegon, Chloee Ambrosini and Brigitte Sandoval had the honor of being the first to perform in the building when they sang the national anthem on Friday.
