Bellevue, Nebraska (KMTV) — Two new elementary schools will open in the 2022-2023 school year. Omaha Public Schools will open Forest Station and Pine Elementary this month. The 2018 Bond Program has been paid to schools.

Today, OPS opened Forest Station to students and families.

Amy Dahir and her two children, Olivia and Emmett Spears, chanted the school’s new cheer. Her children are eager to become students at Forest Station and start her year on a positive note. The family hopes the new school will bring new energy.

Parent Eric Spears said, “You can participate in the first year only once in a lifetime.

Five-year-old Romina Puentes is also preparing for all the learning that takes place in the classroom.

“I want to learn to read and write!” Puentes said.

Forest Station will open with 425 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Attract students from Gomez Heritage and Chandler Views. By bringing people together from two established schools, Principal Scherry Berghardt has a vision for her family, staff and students to become “one.”

“In many ways it’s like a book being written and I’m only the first chapter of it. I know there are many more chapters to come and many sequels. What will they be?” I’m looking forward to it,” said Burghardt. He said.

Burghardt’s approach is to make schools more collaborative by taking learning outside the classroom.

“We have an open space where we can really bring our students and teachers out and see them teaching and learning from each other. ,” says Burghardt.

But like Eric Spears, it’s the parents who live on their children’s behalf, preparing them for the next steps in learning and living.

“I think being a parent is a lot more exciting. The amount of energy you get from your kids, having something completely new, having so much to talk about, being in a new environment is most important. It’s exciting, I’m an adult,” Eric said.

The Pine Elementary School Open House is scheduled for August 4th.
