Community and the governor tour JFK School addition

Posted by wlpo on August 29, 2014

There is one thing that certain about the new addition at Spring Valley JFK School- the roof does not leak.   A steady shower Thursday night didn’t keep parents and students away from the grand opening of the $17 million addition.  Even Governor Pat Quinn spoke and toured the new classrooms, gym, and library

Superintendent James Hermes says they are thankful to have received the grant.   He says they had nice buildings before but the addition allows them to satisfy all of their students’ needs.   He also likes the new entrance.

The entrance is large and has a lot of glass making it possible for school officials to see who is outside.  It also offers a modern touch and leads into a cafeteria the feels more like a great hall.

Fifth Grader Andrea Arteaga was impressed.  She says it looks like a junior high you would see in a movie.

The first day of school is September 3.
