Sheldon East Elementary KIDS Committee Tells Reasons For Planned Renovation/Addition

Date posted - January 3, 2013

KIDS East Elementary Open HouseSheldon, Iowa — The Sheldon East Elementary KIDS Committee — that’s Keep Improving District Schools — was formed to determine and assess the East Elementary building needs.

We had a chance to talk with some members of the Sheldon KIDS Committee recently, and they are working with an engineering firm to finalize a renovation and addition plan. Adam Besaw says the project is first and foremost about safety.

Lisa Johnson — also on the committee — says not only are there safety issues, the building is also bursting at the seams with students, and the project would fix that.

We’ll have more from our talk with members of the KIDS committee on future newscasts on KIWA.

The election to decide the fate of the improvements at East will be on February 5.

An Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, January 8 from 6-8pm. Everyone is welcome to come and take a tour of the school and learn more about the addition and remodeling project.
