Bellview Elementary School in Ashland opened its doors to new student registration this week as crews worked to put final touches on a massive renovation project.

The Tolman Creek Road school nas a new front office, library and classrooms, plus computer projectors in each classroom and specialized rooms for art and science.

"The word people have most often uttered is 'beautiful,'" said Principal Michelle Zundel.

Zundel asked that parents who come to register wait before walking around the facility, as some construction projects are still wrapping up.

The school plans a Sept. 4 open house for Bellview students and families. Ashland elementary schools start the school year Sept. 8.
