Construction at Green T. Lindon Elementary School in Youngsville is nearing the end of phase one of their expansion project.
Since the beginning of the year, the overcrowded school has undergone a massive, multimillion dollar expansion, with the first buildings expected to be complete by August. Phase one will include five concrete buildings which will house classrooms, computer labs, administrative offices and something the school has never had, a gym. Principal Kaye Victorian said “currently when we have inclement weather, the kids have to have P.E. in the hallways or in a classroom.
So it's cramped and they don't get to move around like they should and don’t get the physical activity they should." Green T. Lindon was honored to receive a check Monday for twenty thousand dollars from Courtesy GMC of Lafayette. The school entered their video contest explaining why they deserve to win the money or a car. With over 16 thousand votes they took home first place. The school opted for the money and plan to purchase new playground equipment.
Phase two will be completed by early 2015 with phase three, the last phase, being completed by June of 2015.
