NORTH CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — School leaders, students and parents celebrated the brand-new Beulah Elementary School in North Chesterfield Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting.
The school was built to ease overcrowding at other schools and features 70-inch monitors in every learning space, wider hallways and more bathrooms, among other improvements.
Principal Christina Allen-Roach said it would be a change to have all Beulah students and teachers in the same building.
“It will be the first time in a very long time that all of the Beula teachers and students will be in one building at the same time,” Allen-Roach said. “So most of us do not know how it’s going to feel to be one big family under the same roof.”
Beulah is one of four new elementary schools coming to Chesterfield County.
