1. On August 22, 2018 Sayre School held a ribbon cutting ceremony to unveil a newly constructed Lower School. The 37,000 square foot building will house over 250 students starting at age two and running through grade four.

Mayor Jim Gray, Board of Trustee Chair Andrea Tew, Head of School Stephen Manella, Head of Lower School Annie Papero, and representatives from architects Orcutt | Winslow and Dean Builds simultaneously cut the ribbon to officially open the new building.

Sayre students, families, and friends were then invited inside to tour the new Lower School. A few Sayre teachers were available in classrooms to meet and talk with parents.

The $10 million project broke ground in April 2017. It includes 18 classrooms, a library, a lower-level multi-purpose room, and walls of windows to bring in tons of natural light. Other features include a state-of-the-art science laboratory that opens onto a rooftop terrace, an art room, and a music room.

The building will provide a modern, child-centered and environmentally sound space to support and complement Sayre’s rich, integrated, project-based curriculum. For over 160 years, Sayre has been educating students and building a strong framework of academic excellence that will continue in years to come.
