BENSENVILLE – An addition at Tioga School is almost complete, but it's not completely new.
As a way of honoring history, one of the walls in the new cafeteria features an arch and bricks from Chippewa School, which was located on the same block and recently demolished, according to a District 2 news release.
The entire addition, which includes a classroom wing and bridge connecting it to the existing structure, will be ready for students next school year. The old Tioga School at 313 W. Memorial Board in Bensenville, will be vacated at the end of the school year.
Artifacts from the old Tioga School will also be preserved and installed on the school grounds.
