Students Tour New Lincoln Elementary School

Posted:

It's kind of like an early Christmas present.

One that many say is long overdue.

Steph Scheurer takes us to Lincoln, where students walk through the doors of their brand new school.

(Nat: Bus engine, "We'll get to put them in our desks as soon as we get in."

"Lincoln's been waiting a long time for this," says Lori Ronningen, Kindergarten Teacher.

This - - is Lincoln, North Dakota's first school ever.

These soon-to-be "lightning" elementary students could not be more excited.

"Getting off the bus and walking through the front doors and just their little comments and their smiles and their eyes were so wide open. They just, 'this is so cool," says Shelly Swanson, Principal, Lincoln Elementary School.

"I heard my students saying 'I love this place. I don't want to ever leave. I want to stay here forever," says Ronningen.

Music to teachers' ears.

Students K through four from Solheim, Murphy, Moses, and Will-Moore schools get an early Christmas present - becoming acquainted with their brand new school.

(Nat: Assembly...clapping)

Some of their favorite parts - -

"Getting to know everybody."

"The cafeteria because it's really really big."

"The playground."

"We have a playground but the other classroom didn't have one."

"We did not really have a playground over at the makeshift kindergarten center. They thought the patch of green grass over here was their playground and when they found out we had a real playground, they squealed like little piglets," says Lori Ronningen.

(Nat: Running around screaming...)

The excitement does not stop there.

"These students don't have to ride the bus as long anymore and we've got this beautiful facility with lots of natural light in here and real warm, welcoming colors and so, it's just fun to be able to do this for students and to come and work in a place like this every day," says Swanson.

Whether it's to come and work or to come and learn, you can clearly see that the Lincoln Lightning students and staff will brightly live up to their name.

Lincoln Elementary students got to put their supplies in their new desks, meet their new teachers, and tour the entire school.

Their first day at the new facility will be January 2nd, right after Christmas break.
