Marshfield: Ribbon cutting and tours planned for new model high school

Marshfield is planning a festive ribbon cutting ceremony and tour to celebrate the opening of the town’s brand new model high school.

School Superintendent Dr. Scott Borstel revealed the details.

“The formal ribbon cutting ceremony will be on August 8 at 10 am, out in front of the new Marshfield High School.

There are a number of state and even some federal dignitaries that will be joining us and some local dignitaries, and then the M.S.B.A. and their representatives will be joining us.

We’re going to do the formal ribbon cutting ceremony, and then after that the dignitaries are going to go inside of the building and have a tour.”

The School Superintendent said the public is also invited to tour the new high school.

“Public tours will begin at 1 o’clock in the afternoon and will run until 8 o’clock at night.

The high school has identified some 50 students that will be in the high school next year that will serve as ambassadors, and they will be giving guided tours of the high school between 1 pm and 8 pm. People will have the opportunity to see the whole building. The guided tours are about 45 minutes. The students will take everybody through and show them model science classrooms, model history classrooms and all the major parts of that new, beautiful building.”
