First day at Chiawana High

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - The new Chiawana High School opened its doors to it's first freshman class Monday.

More than 500 freshmen got the first look at the new building. It's taken 2 years to build, costing roughly $72 million.

Students and staff look forward to making the new high school all their own.

"Every once in a while we have to remind them, it doesn't have to be done the way it was done at any other school they've been at. They can figure out new ways and they've had a lot of fun with that," said Teri Kessie, CHS Principal.

Sophomores and juniors will join the freshman class Tuesday.
