When school opened Tuesday, students attending Leith Walk Elementary School in the northeast Baltimore neighborhood of Ramblewood got the first look at an addition tacked on to their 61-year-old school building, reports the Baltimore Brew.
The addition, built with $20 million in state funding, will house grades 2 through 5 and includes “modern classrooms,” according to the Brew.

The new building, connected to the existing structure, is part of the conversion of the school to serve pre-K through eighth grade, beginning in 2014. [more]
