The new Central Trail Elementary School, at 4321 Mitchaw Road, will host an open house for the Sylvania community on Jan. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Children who will be attending the new school, and their parents, will be able to see the new school on Jan. 5. It replaces Central Elementary, on Central Avenue and King Road, which was used through Dec. 21, prior to the winter break. Both Sylvania Schools buildings are in Sylvania Township.
The building was built with funding from a Bond Issue in 2008. The school was designed to mirror a park-like setting and will include skylight features, with earth tone colors on the walls. It is 72,557-square feet and has 39 classrooms, plus an art room, music room, and a computer lab.
Updated technological features, such as a geothermal HVAC system, terrazo flooring in corridors, and windows in the gym, also set the structure apart. The price to build the school was roughly $13.5 million. Students will start at the school Jan. 7, after winter break.
