Davenport Updates Truman School

After working around the clock for more than two months, the renovation of a Davenport school is finished. Thursday afternoon, the district will celebrate with a ribbon cutting at Truman Elementary School.

Principal Mary McMeekin says re-modeling the interior of the 36-year old building cost 7 million dollars.
McMeekin says one goal of the project is to have room for future growth - and now Truman School has enough space for a fourth section at each level, pre-K through 5th grade.   

It also now has a geo-thermal heating and cooling system, and the swimming pool has been filled in and converted into new music and art rooms.

Well-equipped with lots of space.

Truman first opened in 1978 for special education students, then was converted into a general education school in 1993. Nearly 400 children now attend classes there.
