With the 2014-2015 school year recently underway, Joe Robach is proud to be an active supporter of education and the Rochester City School District. That’s why he was on hand to help re-open one of the City of Rochester’s oldest schools, which had undergone a multimillion dollar transformation.
A week before the start of school, students, teachers, parents and school administrators convened at the John Williams School #5 on North Plymouth Avenue in the City of Rochester to celebrate its grand re-opening.
School #5 is a newly rebuilt school that serves grades pre-K through 6 and was originally built in 1926. Joe Robach was pleased to discuss the importance of education as one of the distinguished speakers at the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
“This transformation and remodeling will provide a better learning environment for School #5 students and teachers, all in a state of the art facility,” said Robach. “This facility is as good as any that I’ve seen in the Rochester area, it’s now up to you to put in the work to ensure you get the most out of your education,” he concluded.
This project was part of Phase I of the Rochester City School District Modernization Program, which Senator Robach was proud to support and sponsor in the State Senate. Phase I invested millions of dollars into aging Rochester City School District buildings to make them more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and more conducive to new learning standards.
