WESTBOROUGH – The Annie E. Fales Elementary School on Eli Whitney Street will hold a Grand Opening Celebration on Sunday, Jan. 8, from noon to 2 p.m.

The public is invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by an opportunity to tour the new building.

The project to replace the old Fales school began in the spring of 2020; the new school opened to students and staff in November of 2021. The school currently houses about 350 students in grades K-3.

The final phases of the project, including the demolition of the old school, was recently completed. The site of the old school has been repurposed for additional parking and a bus loop, along with a hardtop playground, fields and a pavilion.

Features at the new school include a geothermal pump system; solar panels; and dedicated art and music rooms.
