Valdosta - This is the first time students have used the classrooms at the old Lomax-Pinevale Elementary School in over three years.
But you won't hear these students complain. "Its like moving to a brand new school. Everyone gets a change to finish their work and start over," says Germaine Creadwell.
Tiffany Reid agrees. "It's better. We expanded and got more space."
They attend the Pinevale Learning Center and were devastated to find arsonists had set fire to their school Tuesday night. "I was upset because everything was burnt up. The computers and everything and nobody got a chance to finish their work," Creadwell says.
The building was destroyed and the faculty left to not only clean up the mess but get the students back in class as soon a possible. "One of the first things that came into my mind is how do we get started again," says PLC Director Ronnie Dunn.
Thursday, classes did resume after a massive clean-up of the vacant elementary school. But the reminder of their loss sits just outside these walls. "It's very sad that this happened to us but we are back in full force and fortunately we have a supportive staff and our children are really ready to be back and they want to graduate."
Administrators say there is still much to be done, new paint, new furniture, new supplies. But students and faculty a like are already calling this new building home.
They hope to have the school furnished by Monday but say it could take several weeks before the other minor renovations and projects are complete.
