The school also is a recipient of a new seven-computer STEM lab from the Department of Defense.

Gurganus Principal Debbie Hurst believes her students will be thrilled with the new STEM lab as they return to classes on Monday.

“It allows for hands-on learning,” she said. “There are brand new computers. It’s really neat and it supports the curriculum.”

Gurganus ended last year by giving away about 500 books to students to read during the summer through a program sponsored by the USO and Lenovo.

Hurst said she and her staff, which includes a couple of new teachers, are excited to welcome students back and believe the students will be excited to be back as well.

“We’re glad to have everybody,” she said.
