North Rock Creek Public Schools invites members of the community to the grand opening of their new high school on Tuesday, August 6, from 6-7 p.m.
According to Superintendent Blake Moody, new and current students as well as their parents will attend the opening which will have food trucks, live music and self guided tours of the new building.
Moody explained the grand opening is just two days before the first day of school which is Thursday, August 8 and it coordinates with Meet the Teacher night which will commence after the opening from 7-8 p.m.
This gives students and parents the opportunity to meet new teachers and other faculty members at the high school.
Moody explained last year the high school officially began and the first freshmen class were attending classes in the district's older campuses.
However, for the 2019-2020 school year, those freshmen will be sophomores and a new group of students will start their high school career in the new building.
Moody explained the new building has many new features with various resources for students.
These include an Innovation Center, new science labs, cafeteria, band rooms, an agriculture center and an art room.
Moody said each classroom in the new school have 65-inch teaching screens that educators can touch, write and work on. They will also have microphone access.
Moody explained the school's Innovation Center has a 20 foot long and 10 foot tall sheet rock wall that has short throw projectors that allow the wall to turn into a touch screen teaching wall. Moody said there is also a broadcast media studio in the Innovation Center and digital screens throughout the school.
