Dignitaries and members of the Greenfield School District came together to dedicate the district’s newest campus on November 15 — Crescent Elementary School, home of the Wolves. The school officially opened its doors this school year to more than 500 TK through 5th grade students and became the thirteenth school in the district.
The festivities included entertainment from the McKee Middle School band and a presentation of colors by the Cadet Corps from Greenfield Middle School. County Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Mendiburu was on hand as well to engage with students and staff.
“What does a wolf represent to you?” Dr. Mendiburu asked the student body, referring to the school’s mascot.
Strength was the consensus among the students in attendance.
“That’s right, this new wolfpack is one of strength,” Mendiburu told the students. “Your strength will allow you to be successful in everything you do.”
District Superintendent, Ramon Hendrix, shared his vision for this school year and offered an overview of the new campus and its many unique programs, including a new preschool program, extended TK classes, a dual-language immersion program, and the integration of the latest security systems and protocols.
The Greenfield Union School District serves an average of 9,000 students annually and is made up of nine elementary schools, three middle schools, and one community school in Southeast Bakersfield.
