In Coal City, we've been waiting with baited breath for over a year to see the results of the Early Childhood Center.
The school measures out at around 74,000 square feet and features 12 kindergarten rooms, 12 first grade rooms and 6 for pre-schoolers. Obviously, these will be the grades the school houses, after which students will attend Coal City Elementary for 2nd and 3rd grade, Coal City Intermediate for 4th and 5th grade and Coal City Middle School for 6th, 7th and 8th before heading off to high school.
At 6pm on Thursday August 14th, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by an open house complete with refreshments (until 8pm). Parents, children and community members will have the opportunity to meet and greet educators and administrators of the district while checking out the new building.
Classes begin on August 20th
