A look inside Howe Elementary's new wing

Teachers get excited by the little things: clean whiteboards, lights that dim, easy-to-use curtains and magnets. A new addition at Howe Elementary has both the little and the big things in it.

"You get to see that everything is magnetic; I can't get over it," Howe first-grade teacher Deborah Hunziker said as she showed off her new room, especially the litany of magnetic holders attached to her whiteboard. "Teachers spend most of their careers trying to stick things on surfaces that don't stick."

The new wing extends the main corridor of the building south, offering a mix of old and new. The new space includes four classrooms on each level and houses the school's youngest grades.  

Teachers in the new space said they have explained to their students that they get to be the first in the new rooms and that they have to take care of them for future students.
