New School Year

Where did the summer go? Yesterday, children in Columbia County celebrated the first day of the new school year. For some kids, it meant a brand new school as well.

Two new schools opened in Columbia County yesterday – a fresh start for both teachers and students. Columbia Middle and Evans Elementary schools welcomed children with open arms and sparkling new buildings. According to the Augusta Chronicle, the $20 million two-story building that is now Columbia Middle was described by parent, Cindy Carr, as “absolutely beautiful. They did a good job.” And the new two-story Evans Elementary facility will house 684 students.

Look for photos of your children on their first day of school on the Augusta Chronicle’s website. Richmond County will start school on Monday, August 12.
