Visitors ranging in age from toddlers to senior citizens flooded the hallways of the new Bellefontaine Elementary School and Bellefontaine Middle School at 1001 and 1201 Ludlow Road, respectively, Sunday afternoon for a community open house to showcase the facilities that opened this school year.

Kindergartner Jamison Clement was proud to show his grandparents and mother around the new elementary building, taking them on a tour of some of his favorite locations, including the gymnasium and cafeteria.

“He’s off to a wonderful start,” Kristy Clement said of her son. “I wasn’t sure how he would like school, but he is really enjoying himself. He’s so fortunate to be able to attend school in this new building.”

“It’s gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous,” Mrs. Berton said.
