The exterior of King Elementary School seems to blend in with the white snow in this photo of the west entrance of the school. Actually, the brick is light beige. The school will contain 18 classrooms and two kindergartens. It will also be completely air-conditioned. Because of the air-conditioning, it is expected a large number of summer school classes will be held at King School. The total cost of the new school, slated to open in September, is $1,131, 825.

School Dedication Attracts Some 1,000 People. Some 1,000 persons attended yesterday's dedication ceremonies at the Martin Luther King Elementary School in Ann Arbor. Mrs. Rachel Schreiber, principal, is shown speaking to part of the crowd. An overflow audience which could not be seated in the gymnasium heard the program over the public address system. Five third and fourth graders read essays and poems, the school's chorus read Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech, and two songs, including "We Shall Overcome," were sung by the students. Dr. Harold J. Lockett, president of the Ann Arbor Board of Education, gave the dedication speech.
