School staff, students, family and friends, along with administrators from the Edmonds School District, were on hand Tuesday afternoon for a ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony for the new playground shed at Terrace Park Elementary School in Mountlake Terrace. The structure is expected to provide shelter for the approximately 650 students at the school during recesses, physical education classes and other school activities. Here’s a gallery of some of Tuesday’s event (all photos by Todd Stenhouse):
