The School Dedication

Our dedication ceremony was Tuesday, April 26 at 1pm. Students and staff gathered in the auditorium for a time of celebration as Diggs and Latham, two schools, have officially come together as One School, One Community as Diggs-Latham Elementary Magnet School for Arts and Global Studies. We were honored with words of encouragement and celebration from Mayor Joines and Assistant Superintendent Toni Bigham. Also in the audience and offering words of thanks and encouragement were community partners and special guests, such as Quilla Smith with Friends of Diggs-Latham, and Mr. Shores, our long-time friend, sponsor, and volunteer. We enjoyed music by Reynolds High School Orchestra and our own teachers, Mr. Pilson, Mr. Powelson, and Ms. Ingram. Ms. Ingram sang "Rainbow," a song by Mr. Pilson, while Mr. Pilson accompanied on Piano and Mr. Powelson accompanied on violin. The ceremony ended as Mrs. Wright, our principal, cut a ribbon to honor the official opening of our new school.
