The Donna Independent School District is celebrating the opening of their newest addition to WA Todd Middle School.
The $4 million extension includes 17 new classrooms, visitor parking and renovations.
The district’s superintendent says the upgrades will help improve the learning environment for students.
‘We were planning for this for a long time and we are happy that we are able to achieve this for our students. Our students used to have temporary buildings for years and we are just very excited to have this new and very upgraded wing,” said Hafedh Azadize, Donna ISD Superintendent.
Prior to Thursday, nearly 40 percent of the school’s classrooms were held in portable buildings.
