Black Hawk Elementary now closed

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- School's officially out for summer in Waterloo.  But Monday was also the last day of class ever in the current Black Hawk Elementary School.  The building has been around for 60 years.  The school's being replaced with a new one that is set to be built on the same site, in the 1700 block of Downing Avenue.  The new facility should be completed by the fall of 2011.  But students are sad to see the old school building close.

 "I've been here since kindergarten.  My favorite teacher was probably Mr. Nash.  And now I'm not going to be able to see him next year," said Chris Adams, Black Hawk student.

 Most students from Black Hawk will attend classes at Edison Elementary in the fall.
