Moore County Schools reached a milestone today when it broke ground on the New Area 1 Elementary School on Camp Easter Road.
Moore County Schools released ground breaking photos on social media today.
The school is being built to relieve overcrowding at Vass-Lakeview and Sandhills Farm Life Elementary Schools. According to Moore County Schools, the building will be 113,772 sq. ft and hold up to 800 students from kindergarten through 5th grade.
The classroom wings in the school will have plenty of windows to allow natural light in each classroom. Moore County Schools said, “This daylight design will save energy and has been proven to promote student success and reduce absenteeism.
The school will also be set up to “provide opportunists for self-guided learning and team-teaching strategies.”

Moore County Schools said, “Moore County Board of Education Chair Helena Wallin-Miller, Moore County Board of Commissioners Chair Catherine Graham and Superintendent Dr. Bob Grimesey recognized the occasion with the help of 3rd and 4th graders from Sandhills Farm Life and Vass-Lakeview, some of whom could be the school’s future students.”
The school’s construction is scheduled to be completed by May of next year with students starting in August for the 2019-2020 school year.
