Larea Gamble, principal for House Creek Elementary in Copperas Cove, directs Lone Star Structures, of Temple, in delivering the school's new gazebo Wednesday Aug. 20, 2014.

COPPERAS COVE — House Creek Elementary School wrapped up several beautification projects Wednesday, just in time to welcome students back to school on Monday.

Four benches and six planters, along with soil and plants, were purchased with money raised during several campus fundraisers.

Capping off the project was the installation of a new gazebo, which will act as an outdoor classroom. The PTA raised more than $10,500. Total cost of the project was $6,800.
