New Alvaton Elementary

It's a new school year and that means new teachers, new school supplies, and bulldozers?

The principal of Alvaton Elementary, Mark Rathbun, says: "The exterior of the building is where we have more concerns and more needs at this time."

Students at Alvaton Elementary began their new year in a new school.
While the interior of the new school is operational, construction continues outside.

Rathbun says: "We're really in great shape, except for the parking situation right now."

Crews are still working on the outside of the school which means the parking lot isn't finished. Parents and visitors are being asked to park in the field across the street. Rathbun says: "If parents will continue to drive by the gravel lot and drop students off and just keep moving, not get out of their cars in that lane that will be the biggest thing to help us right now."

On the inside students are buzzing about their new surroundings. Kindergarten teacher, Amy Pendley, says: "We don't have to worry about electricity so much because it's automatic and from what I understand the lights dim when the sun gets bright."

Most of the old school, which was built in 1936, has been demolished.
The gym for the old Alvaton Elementary is still standing. Principal Rathbun says it will be used by Warren County Parks and Rec.
