It is the first day of school for hundreds in KELOLAND, but some students will be starting school in a brand new classroom.
Two brand new schools are opening in the Harrisburg School District. Both Endeavor Elementary School and North Middle School will open for the first time on Wednesday.
School officials were quickly getting things finished up Tuesday.
Endeavor Principal says the anticipation builds as the clock counts down the minutes before the school opens the doors. But it’s not just the students and parents who are getting nervous - the administration is getting nervous as well.
“We're very excited to get the students in here. We're to the point that we just want the students in, we want to get going, get moving. We're so excited to start a new building,” Endeavor Elementary School Principal Mike Munzke said.
Nearly 400 students will attend Endeavor Elementary this fall.
North Middle School is the second middle school to open up in the Harrisburg School District.
The hallways are open and in the middle of the building there is a commons area that has open outside lighting and tall stools.
The North Middle School Principal says he is excited to finally get kids in this school.
“We're feeling pretty good. We're just putting the finishing touches on it and we're excited to get them back in the hallways,” North Middle School Principal Tim Koehler said.
They still have a few things they need to finish at North though. They need to finish the gym and the music room. And in November the theater room will be complete.
