2-story addition will replace 10 portable classrooms
GLEN ELLYN – Hadley Junior High School eighth-grader Nate Pinto never liked having to leave the warmth of his school in the winter to go to a portable classroom.
So he was pleased to help Glen Ellyn School District 41 officials break ground April 3 on a two-story addition that will replace the 10 portable classrooms at Hadley. The addition also includes a new music space.
"I am very happy to see them go because it is going to be a safe environment for children," the Glendale Heights 13-year-old said after the groundbreaking ceremony. "Having to walk outside in the freezing cold in winter was the worst part of it."
