Delisle Elementary School nears completion

DELISLE, MS (WLOX) - Many Pass Christian students can look forward to being in a brand new school when classes start in August. Construction on the new Delisle Elementary School should be finished early next month.

The old school was damaged by Hurricane Katrina, and the district wanted a safer campus. So crews are rebuilding the main school building.

They left the gym and four classrooms intact. They also converted the old cafeteria into a Media Center and Auditorium.

Teachers hope to start moving into the new school in mid-July.
