River Oaks Elementary to open for 2012 school year

Some Horry County students will attend a brand new school next year.

County leaders broke ground for the new River Oaks Elementary School Wednesday afternoon.

It's being built on Augusta Plantation Drive, off River Oaks Drive.

Eighty percent of the school's students will come from Ocean Bay Elementary. The rest will come from Carolina Forest Elementary.

The school will be a green school, which will go beyond the building materials.

They also have a new principal picked out. Dr. June Moorhead is set to fill the spot .
