HH_grnbrk.pngThe official ground breaking ceremony was held today at 1 pm for the new Happy Hollow Elementary School. All of the Happy Hollow students attended the ceremony, which was held in the field that will become the new school.

Superintendent Vicki Thomas welcomed the crowd, and school board president Susan Heil and Fayetteville mayor Lioneld Jordan also spoke. Happy Hollow principal Sharon Pepple got to operate one of the earth moving machines and scooped a large bucket full of dirt.

The site preparation has begun on the new school, which will open in August of 2011.
