It's official.....the Jefferson Elementary School replacement project is underway. The entire Jefferson student body emptied out to the north playfield Friday morning to watch the groundbreaking ceremony. And the students had some extra fun when they joined school board members, district administrators, and teachers in turning over some of the dirt with gold shovels.

"This is a very exciting day for our entire Jefferson family," said Principal Bobbi Buttars.

Design West Architects, Kennewick, is the architectural firm for the Jefferson replacement project. The new Jefferson will be 65,000 square feet in size and house 537 students.
