Billy & Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary School Opening August 14th!
The Clark County School District is the 5th largest school district on the nation. After steady overcrowding over the years at surrounding local schools, CCSD has built six new elementary schools for the 2017-18 school year, with a seventh one to open in January 2018.
One of these new schools, Billy and Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary, is in Summerlin located at 215 Antelope Ridge Drive, 89138. The 101,620 square foot, 850-student capacity school will help relieve overcrowding at Givens, where last year the school had 1,085 students, but is only intended for 867. Nearby Staton Elementary is designed for only 784 but had 918 students, and Bonner elementary school had 921 but was built for only 584. Vassiliadis Elementary will offer 53 classrooms, including 2 flex classrooms, 1 STEM classroom, a library and 1 art classroom.
The school is located in Paseos village- the community’s largest track of new homes . There are 12 gated neighborhoods by seven different home builders in this area. These neighborhoods are all master-designed for a modern family: 50 different floor plans of living space that make use of the area’s elevation from stunning views over the Vegas valley to cooler temps.
Homes in The Paseos range from the $300,000s to more than $800,000 for anywhere from 1,850 square feet of living space to more than 4,200 square feet. Some homes even feature things such as rooftop decks, extra garage space, master suite retreats and casitas for extended family and visiting guests.
The new schools were made possible through CCSD’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The Capital Improvement Program uses bond funds that can only be applied to projects such as building new schools, school replacements, phased replacements, renovations, modernizations, technology upgrades and transportation. The new schools will add capacity for close to 6,000 more students.
The 6 new schools opening in August 2017 are:
- Billy and Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary School, Antelope Ridge and Desert Foothills
- Shelley Berkley Elementary School, Maule Avenue and Grand Canyon Drive
- Janis L. Jones Blackhurst Elementary School, Chartan Avenue and Pioneer Way

HOCKEY HOME SWEET HOME…
For anyone who doesn’t follow hockey, sports, or the local word on the street- then you may not have heard the big news: Las Vegas recently got it’s first professional sports team! Scheduled to make their NHL debut during the 2017- 2018 NHL season, The Vegas Golden Knights are a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL) and will be playing home games at the new TMobile Arena. The bigger news isn’t where they’re playing, however; It’s where they’ll be practicing.
15 miles west of downtown Vegas sits Downtown Summerlin. This is where the Vegas Knights new $30-million, 146,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art practice facility is located and construction is already underway. Situated across from Downtown Summerlin on South Pavilion Center Drive near the Red Rock Casino, the facility will feature two NHL-sized ice rinks for both team and public use.
THE VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS FACILITY
The new practice facility is expected to open in August 2017 and will offer an array of amenities. Besides the 2 full-size hockey rinks, the venue will have a 20,000 square foot 2nd floor for office space. There will also be a 9,000 square foot restaurant and bar. It’s also being said that the Vegas Knights will have what’s being called ‘the largest gym of any NHL practice facility in the country.’
Of course, there will be a players lounge, couches, flat-screen TVs and video games, a team locker room and multiple public locker rooms, too. The player locker room will have showers, a sauna, a steam room and the team will have a full-time masseuse on hand as well.
The Golden Knights goal for the facility is to provide the team with a corporate base and establish itself as the region’s hub for adult and youth hockey. Team practices will be open to the public and soon, the facility itself will be open for practice.
HOCKEY IN FULL SWING
With head coach Gerard Gallant and general manager George McPhee at the helm, The Vegas Knights already have hockey in full swing. With the upcoming NHL draft following the results of the annual NHL Draft Lottery on April 29th in Toronto, the Vegas Golden Knights will select sixth overall in the first round. Initially, the unfavorable news of the team picking sixth came as a disappointment. History shows, however, that there could be far worse positions to pick and Gallant will be making educated choices. The expansion draft will be held from June 18 to 20, 2017. The results of the draft, along with the Golden Knights’ initial roster, will be revealed on June 21, 2017, during the NHL Awards at T-Mobile Arena.
NEW CONSTRUCTION IN SUMMERLIN- THINKING OF BUILDING A HOME?
Are you thinking of getting a new construction home from a builder in the Summerlin area? That’s great- if you’re absolutely sure that you’ll get every penny for your dollar. And will your investments be protected in the process? If you’re not sure (and most people aren’t), then we recommend hiring a local real estate agent who specializes in representing your best interests in the new-build home-buying process.
HAVE A PRO ON YOUR TEAM
Builders of large developments generally have employees that work for them on site. This bypasses traditional real estate agents because it cuts down their costs. Other times, they’ll have their own real estate agent who manages their listings for them. Either way, you’ll want to get your own agent to represent your own interests.
Not surprisingly, it’s the same story for lenders. Some builders try to “require” that you are pre-approved by their preferred lender first. They just want to make sure you’re a serious buyer. In most cases, however, you can still use the lender you choose- and especially if you have an agent guiding you along the way. Most agents have multiple lenders they’ll work with, and in some cases, even a preferred partner of their own that could save you in the end.
REPRESENTING YOUR BEST INTERESTS
New construction homes aren’t always listed in the MLS. Many people don’t realize that builders aren’t members of the MLS, therefore their homes may not show up in the MLS in their area. It’s better to work with a local agent who has access to the MLS and knowledge of all new builds in the area and what they offer.
Builders sell new homes often before they’re even built. From start to finish, the process in itself can take months. Most builders sell in ‘phases’ with each phase lasting as long as it takes to sell all the homes in that track. This means that without asking the right questions and choosing the best time to buy, you could end up living in a neighborhood construction zone for years.
Especially early on in the sales process, a home builder wants to get several homes under contract quickly to get the project rolling. As a buyer, this can mean more room for a lower price negotiation in the sale process. But once committed, if the sales of your development stall and you don’t want to move ahead with the build, you could risk losing your down payment and be stuck under contract with no way out. Avoid that by having a new construction home specialist represent you.
