Aiken Intermediate, Graniteville Elementary dedications set for August

Aiken County Public Schools will dedicate two new schools in re-purposed buildings in August.

The ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for Aiken Intermediate School will be at 1 p.m. Aug. 6 at the school at 101 Gator Lane.

The ribbon cutting and dedication for Graniteville Elementary will be at 10 a.m. Aug. 10 at the school at 1 Willis Circle.

Aiken Intermediate, formerly Aiken Middle School, is for all Aiken County Public Schools' sixth-graders in Area 1. After their one year at the new schools, students will attend either Schofield Middle School or Kennedy Middle School according to their attendance area for seventh and eighth grades.

Graniteville Elementary was built in the 1950s as the original Byrd Elementary and later became the Byrd Learning Center for adult education. The school will allow the district to alleviate overcrowding at Byrd Elementary, which has had an increase in population because of new housing developments in the Graniteville area.

Guests can tour the schools after the ceremonies.
