New Hanover County’s newest school, Castle Hayne Elementary, is officially open. Even though students have filled the halls since August, Friday marked the school’s official dedication.

Board members, administrators, faculty, staff and students gathered to celebrate. Students provided the entertainment, and guided tours of the shiny new school were also available.

Parents said the school is a big hit with the kids. “He loves going to school. He comes home and says he loves going to school,” said Castle Hayne parent Lisa Lanier. “It’s a lot easier to wake him up in the morning when he wants to get up.”

Each classroom comes fully equipped with state of the art technology and computers.

The school is built for 600 students grades K through 5. The 60-acre campus also allows for plenty of fun, with playgrounds and multiple sports fields.

Police Chief John Carey told the board of aldermen that now would be a good time for an upgrade. The Wilmington police and New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office are making transitions to Smith & Wesson M&P handguns, and if Wrightsville Beach gets the same kind, that will help keep it standardized with the other local departments, he said.
