The new school houses children in grades 2 through 5. Kindergartners and First Graders will continue going to Sugar Creek Elementary School, which was built in 1956.
Four more classrooms and a gymnasium were added to the school in 1921, and it was renamed “Sugar Creek School.” This school served students until the 1956 school was built. The old school building would later be used as a Civil Defense shelter, a community building, and a haunted house, before it was destroyed by fire in 1980. The gymnasium remains today as a community center and the home of the Sugar Creek Citizen's Civic Relief Commission (CCRC).
The new Mallinson School is getting rave reviews from the students that attend it. “I love it!” exclaimed Zoe Reiber, Fourth Grader. “One thing I love is all the colors inside. It’s beautiful! And Miss Barnes is a very nice principal. She let us choose our own mascot.” The mascot chosen by students was the Cardinal. “All the teachers really care and they give you the best they can so that you can have an incredible education.”
