New Surrey elementary school to open Monday

Adams Road Elementary nearing completion in late 2010.

Monday is a big day for Adams Road Elementary. It’s the first day of school.

The brand-new, $11-million K-7 elementary school was supposed to open in September, but completion delays forced opening day into 2011.

Adams Road has been functioning as its own entity at another school since the start of the school year.

The temporary office was located at Don Christian Elementary, where Adams Road students were assigned to their Adams Road teachers and classroom configurations.

On Jan. 10, the wait is over.

Parents are invited to drop by for a tour of Surrey’s newest school Monday morning, while students settle into their classrooms.

The school, located at 18228 68 Avenue, also hosts an open house Monday from 6 to 7 p.m.

The student population is 235 but the school can accommodate up to 300 students. It’s energy efficient and built to LEED gold standards.
