(09/03/13) - Powers Catholic High School students in Flint are celebrating the first day on their new campus.
Traveling the hallways of the new Powers Catholic High School, it's not hard to spot a lost student.
"So everybody here is lost and everybody is trying to figure it out," said Hannah Fox, student.
"It's like I'm a freshman again not knowing where I'm going," said student, Isiah Leavy.
For decades, Powers students started that first day at a different location. But after months of renovations at the former Michigan School for the Deaf, and an addition, the building is ready just in time for the start of school.
"I like everything, I like the blend of the old and new, kind of the collegiate campus feeling and the new part of the media, the media center, commons and athletic part," said Bill Haley, executive director of Genesee County Catholic Schools.
"It's awesome and for me personally it's the sense of relief that now we're just going to do what we do," said Tom Furnas, former principal.
That includes teaching, learning and growing in this new environment for everyone, something that excited both faculty and students.
To better guide students through the process, Powers is breaking up this first day in sessions.
Tuesday, sophomores and juniors had a half day. Wednesday, will be the seniors turn, then back to normal after.
