Two weeks ago, Alden Elementary students began utilizing the building's newly renovated art room/maker space classroom, a project approved by the Alden School Board that transformed the old home economics classroom into a playground for students to unleash their creativity.
That classroom was not being utilized according to Alden Elementary Principal Kyle Fett. Over a year's worth of planning led to the project's completion. Overall, Fett estimated the project was completed at a cost of roughly $85,000. The district paid for the work with the use of PPEL (Physical Plant and Equipment Levy) money.
