District Dedicates New Northeast High School
On Dec. 3, the new Northeast High School was officially dedicated. Funded through Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (ESPLOST) dollars, the new building opened on August 1.
“This facility is now conducive to the kind of learning we’ve wanted for our children all along,” said Ella Carter, Board of Education member and former Northeast principal.
The school is located on the same property as the old building at 1646 Upper River Road. A new Appling Middle School is currently being built on an adjacent property.

Heritage Elementary Presents 'Living Cell'
On Dec. 18, Heritage Elementary School presented a "Living Cell" demonstration. Fifth-grade students used tablet apps, a microscope and classroom-sized models to practice their presentation skills.
"Another thing, it allows them to share their knowledge with the community and their parents," said teacher Thomas Cote. "The hopes of this is that it makes them fall in love with science and how things work."
Cote also pointed out that younger students visit the hallway as well, which provides his students a chance to mentor their younger schoolmates.
