SHELBY — Shelby's new PreK-8 building is finally bringing everybody together on one unified campus.

The facility welcomed students in kindergarten through 5th grade on Tuesday for the first day of school. Students in sixth through eighth grade have begun classes in the old junior high building nearby.


Extended learning areas allow students to get out of the classroom for group projects or simply a change of pace.


The playground is one of the most beloved aspects of Shelby's new school building.
