This is the year the kids will never forget. A brand new school.

Thursday, October 12th, you're invited to come to the official ribbon cutting for Temple's newest Elementary School...Thornton. Hosted by the Temple Chamber of Commerce.

You'll be able to take a tour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

A new school sounds fun. Sure it shiny and smells nice, but it also means you can't touch anything.

It's a lot like the week before Thanksgiving. Your mom cleans every room, and once she's done a room, you can't go inside that room until Thanksgiving. We called it the Countdown to Crazy. You got used to it after a few years. The tough times came when she cleaned the bathrooms first.

When I was a freshman in high school, they finished building a new gym. The first time someone slammed their gym locker shut you'd thought the world was going to end. The gym teachers done lost their minds.

 

Now that us just a new gym. Good grief, imagine a whole new school. Frightening.
