Everyone remembers the first day of school
Opening a new building is a celebratory event for students, parents and teachers; however, the pandemic paused such gatherings and forced a quick change to a virtual event.
With a goal to replicate the feeling of a school tour, we organized Cheston’s virtual ribbon-cutting over Zoom. Through taped interviews, the superintendent, school board president, principal and mayor welcomed Cheston students to their new building while expressing encouraging words about the school year. At the close, attendees were directed to a website with Matterport captures that allowed individual tours of the building’s largest spaces.
