District 25 shows off additions to two Arlington Heights schools
Arlington Heights Elementary District 25 gave VIP tours Friday to show off major additions at Thomas Middle School, 1430 N. Belmont Ave., and Windsor Elementary School, 1315 E. Miner St.
The Thomas expansion included a new gymnasium, a new front entrance, new offices, expanded commons and seven new classrooms. The old gymnasium space was converted into a new band room and new music room, and the old workout room was converted into a new drama room.
Work on the nearly $15 million project began late last year. The school has about 1,000 students, a number that has been growing in recent years.
The Windsor expansion included six new classrooms, a new office and meeting spaces for staff, expanded commons and a gymnasium addition that doubled the size. The work, which cost almost $14 million, allowed the school to get rid of its mobile building, where two classrooms met.
Fall classes in District 25 begin Monday morning.
