They say good things come to those who wait. That could not be more true for students at Barranca Elementary, who on Tuesday finally cut the ribbon on the Legacy Basketball Court Project.
They have been waiting for a new basketball court since last spring, when students in Nicole McGrane’s sixth grade class thought up the idea and began a conversation about what the Parent Teacher Organization does for the school.
The class started talking about how run-down the basketball courts were.
“I told them if they felt that strongly, then they should do something about it,” McGrane said. She never thought the students would actually take action, but that’s just what they did.
