Members of the Pattonville High School boys and girls swim and dive teams marked the opening of the new Pattonville Aquatic Complex by jumping in the waters of their school’s new pool and - with the help of mascot Pete the Pirate - cutting the ribbon to commemorate its opening. At the same time, members of the dive team jumped from the new diving boards. The festivities took place during an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Jan. 4. The celebration continued on Saturday, Jan. 5, with an open swim for the community and a swim/dive meet for alumni members of the Pattonville swimming and diving teams.

|Ribbon cutting for new pool set for Jan. 4|
|Wednesday, December 12, 2012|
On Jan. 4, members of the Pattonville boys and girls swim and dive teams will mark the opening of the new Pattonville Aquatic Center by stretching out across the new pool and holding more than 25 yards of green ribbon. Team members are taking to the water to help cut the ribbon on the new facility, which is in the final phases of construction. The pool facility is funded by Prop K, the zero tax rate increase bond issue approved by voters in November 2010. Funds from the bond issue can only be used for bond projects such as the pool and are prohibited by law to be used for the district’s operational budget (the budget for items such as salaries and textbooks). Pattonville High School will host an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Jan. 4. The public can tour the facility from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will commence at 6:30 p.m. The festivities continue on Saturday, Jan. 5, with an open swim for the community from noon to 3 p.m. At 6 p.m., alumni members of the Pattonville swimming and diving teams will have an alumni swim and dive meet with former Pattonville swim coaches John Hamilton and Bill Rinesmith as the honorary coaches.

Most Pattonville schools are having work completed this summer as part of a $41 million zero tax rate increase bond issue approved by voters in November 2010. A school-by-school list of work underway this summer can be found below. Funds from the bond issue can only be used for bond projects and are prohibited by law to be used for the district’s operational budget (the budget for items such as salaries and textbooks). All work planned for this summer, except for the high school pool, are expected to be complete by Wednesday, Aug. 15, the first day of school in the 2012-2013 school year. The pool is expected to be completed in December.
