The new Kroger at The Crossings had been nicknamed The Second Coming. That was because when it opened you would have thought it was The Second Coming. So when the new elementary school opens it will be called The Second Second Coming.

Looking forward to new beginnings, new and old families, a dedicated teaching staff and strong leadership all in a new building with lots of wonderful learning opportunities. My six year old is excited about her new school....it's wonderful to look at things through the eyes of a child.....they are not clouded with negativity. :)

There's a rendering of it in the Brown lobby and every time we pass it, my 1st grader says, "That's my new school!" We can't wait to see the completed masterpiece and are looking forward to an amazing experience under Mr. Ward and Mrs. Bassett's fantastic leadership.
