East Texas Private School Making A Public Affair Of New Building

After renting out rooms from a local church, an East Texas school is ready to share the grand opening of their new school building with the public.

This is Brook Hill's new building for their Pre-K through 5th graders. Brook Hill Lower School, as it's called, already has more than 170 primary school students.

After a year of using a church building across the street, students and faculty are excited about having a place to call their own.

"[The students] take a lot of pride in the new building but yet they're still kids and we still have to tell them to wipe their feet. They really do love the new surroundings," says 5th grade teacher Cathy Luckert.

Brook Hill is on Old Jacksonville Highway in Flint.

They'll have a grand opening that's open to the public Tuesday, October 17 from 7-8 p.m.
