A large crowd gathered Tuesday at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Pinehurst Elementary School.
The former school located on Dundee Road was torn down in November to make room for a new school, which will be twice the size.

The two-story school, which will serve 800 students, is scheduled to open in August 2021. Moore County voters approved a bond referendum last year to fund the construction.
The 118,346-square-foot school will host kindergarten through fifth grade.
