      A look inside new $15 million school


      FOX 31 received a look inside a brand new $15 million school in Terrell County Friday morning.

      Classes started Thursday at Cooper-Carver Elementary School in Dawson.

      Two schools were joined together so now the county has a total of two schools instead of four. The facility has 50 classrooms, a gymnasium, media center and the teachers and superintendent are feeling good about the new school year.

      "Today is the second day of school," Superintendent Robert Aaron said. "It went rather smoothly. Yesterday was the first day and we're very excited about the building. The teachers are excited and feel safe and one thing they're going to do, they're going to learn and they're going to get their exercise because the hallways are very long."

      The school board and superintendent are now using the Carver Elementary building for their offices.
