FREDERICK, Md. - With summer coming to a close, students and staff at North Frederick Elementary have a little more to look forward to coming back to school this year.

"We are very excited about the new renovations, the technology advancements that we now have," said DeVeda Coley, Principal at North Frederick.

The excitement comes after the state and county spent a projected $30 million on the school's renovations. After about a year of construction, students can expect a newly renovated library, full size gym, and upgraded technology in the classroom.

Parents, like Andrea Robinson-Tejada, said the new improvements were long overdue and much needed.

"We were always very happy with the teachers, but the building facilities were lacking. I mean, it was just an old building, so this is stellar," Robinson-Tejada said.

Among the varying amenities, grades 3 through 5 will get tablets to assist student learning. One of many upgrades that has kids enthusiastic about the upcoming school year.

"I'm really excited to have the tablets because it's going to help us with math," said Elijah Robinson, an incoming third grader at North Frederick.
