New Elementary School Opens In Tyler

The new $10 million W.A. Peete Elementary School, 64,000 square foot building opened its doors last week, but Sunday marked the official welcome for students, teachers, and members of the community.  While some are excited to learn in the new school, others are just happy to reflect on their school days gone by.

Terrian Ohara, a fourth grader at Peete said his new school is great. 

"It's huge," said Ohara.  "It has lots of space and new furniture."

"It's a blessing to be here and to see how far this school has come, and the people who have come through these doors," said former Old Peete Elementary School Student Robert Humphrey.  Peete Elementary is the last facility to be built from the 2004 Tyler ISD School Bond.
