DENHAM SPRINGS, La (BRPROUD) – Denham Springs Elementary School students got a sneak peek of the school’s new campus after the school grounds were destroyed due to the flood in 2016.
“We are excited that this day is finally becoming a reality,” Denham Springs Elementary Principal Gail DeLee said in a press release.
Students and staff were at a temporary campus next to Immaculate Conception Church because Denham Springs Elementary School was one of three schools in the parish that was deemed substantially damaged by FEMA following the flood, according to the press release.
“Every space is a learning space,” Superintendent Joe Murphy said.
The campus was constructed at the school’s original site of 306 N. Range Avenue. The building also includes honeycomb-shaped lighting fixtures, a purple and gold design throughout the building, and a large yellowjacket mascot on the wall near the school’s main entrance.
