HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Students at Presbyterian Christian Elementary School will be in new surroundings when they start the school year in August.

A brand new school on the corner of W-S-F Tatum Drive and Bonhomie Road is nearly complete and almost ready to be moved in to. Thursday parents and students had an opportunity to tour the school.

Enrollment at the school is expected to be around 500. There will be 28 classrooms, a computer lab, library, reading center and arts and music suites. The kindergarten will also have a discovery lab.

The price tag on the school is around 5.8-million-dollars. Through their Legacy Campaign they have managed to pay off about two and a half million. They hope to have it completely paid off in five years.

With help from parent volunteers they will begin to move in to the building the week of June, 11.

First day of school in the new building will be in mid-August.
