BALTIMORE, Md. (WMAR) - Students at Leith Walk Elementary School on Sherwood Avenue finally got a glimpse of what has been touted as a new state-of-the-art building on the campus.
With smiles on their faces students sat in anticipation Monday morning at the official ribbon-cutting for the new building. In addition to seeing the inside of the new building, many also hoped to catch a glimpse of Governor Martin O'Malley. The governor planned to speak at the event in support of the modernization of the school and state funds that make such changes at other schools realistic.
The new addition offers students wifi, air conditioning, voice over internet phones, a state of the art security system and lots of natural light.
The new building at Leith Walk is the first phase of a $28 million renovation project. Phase two includes renovating the old Leith Walk school building. Once the entire project is complete, Leith Walk will be capable of accomidating 1,200 students and will be one of the largest elementary/middle schools in the city.
