Pershing Elementary School
University City (KSDK) -- School officials cut the ribbon Saturday to officially open the new Pershing Elementary School in University City.
The new, 2-story building has 60-thousand feet of space, and is designed to be energy efficient.
It's one of two new schools recently built in University City. Construction of Pershing Elementary and Barbara C. Jordan Elementary were both paid for by a 53.6 million dollar bond issue passed in 2009.
The first day of school in University City is Wednesday, August 22nd.
