CHICO, Calif. - Phase one of renovation at Shasta Elementary School in Chico was officially completed.
Phase one included new kindergarten, first grade and second-grade classrooms as well as a new kindergarten playground.
The $15-million project, which was paid for through Measure K funding, started last year and students moved into their new classrooms a few weeks ago.
Courtny Connelly, vice principal for Shasta Elementary School, said that everyone was excited to get into the new buildings.
"well the facilities are amazing," Connelly said. "They have musonic t.v.s, so technology is updated. They're clean and safe and there are some beautiful opportunities for students to learn and explore. It's been really really great learning space so it's been really neat."
Phase two., which includes a new outdoor eating area is already under construction. Then, phase three will involve renovating the third through fifth-grade classrooms.
All of the work should be finished by this coming Fall.
The public is invited to attend an open house for Shasta Elementary School on Leora Court at 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
