In a fitting tribute, Sunset Heights Elementary School students led municipal dignitaries, senior school district administrataors, teachers, staff, and invited guests on June 6 in celebrating the completion of major renovations at Sunset Heights Elementary School.
Fifth graders reminisced and composed a poem to capture what it was like "living with construction" and acknowledged the ups and downs of the work of the many members of the "hard hat crew." Click here

The $11 million renovation project encompassed a new roof, refurbished classrooms and hallways, a re-configured parking lot with dedicated bus loop and parent drop-off, re-furbished walkways accentuated with commemorative bricks, new travel signs and identifying school signs, as well as an expanded and relocated main office suite equipped with upgraded security system.
Principal Philip Schappler, Chief Operating Officer Daniel Donovan, and Plant Operations Director Shawn Smith led the nearly two-year project, which was managed by crews from Harvey Construction Corporation and architects from Harriman.
As a final gesture of the special event, Nashua Board of Alderman Richard Dowd, chair of the City of Nashua Joint Special School Building Committee, which oversaw the project, presented Superintendent of Schools Connie Brown with a golden key to the re-dedicated Sunset Heights Elementary School.
Congratulations to everyone invested in the wonderful improvements to Sunset Heights Elementary School.
