A Smooth Start at Sasha Bruce

By Marc Borbely, 536 13th St. NE

School opened as planned on Tuesday, at the Sasha Bruce Charter School, in the annex (smaller) building of the former Kingsman Elementary School.

"Everything went smoothly," said Michelle Gelsino, vice president of the Charter Schools Development Corporation, which is leasing the property Sasha Bruce.

School opened with 97 students in seventh and eighth grades, Ms. Gelsino said.

A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled for Sept. 24, at 9 a.m.

By next school year, Ms. Gelsino said, the main Kingsman building will be reopened and occupied by Options Charter School. §
