Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Some elementary students in West Valley can't wait to get back to school after the holidays.

For a year and a half now, the students at Granger Elementary have been watching their new school being built from the ground up. "The kids will be awestruck when they come in here," Principal Wayne Williamson said.

Williamson says having a shiny new building like this is new for a lot the students, as many of them come from low-income families.

Teacher Troy Gatherum is just as excited as the students. "It's just a nice, brand new building. We've been in buildings that have been a little bit older, you could say," he said.

He says his students have been talking about how excited they were for months, and he thinks opening day will be like Christmas morning all over again.
