Wells-Carey Elementary

The Keokuk School District is showing off its recent addition to Hawthorne Elementary School.

The expansion includes six full-size classrooms, two half-size classrooms, and some additional square footage within the library.

Superintendent Lora Wolff says the addition will allow the district to restructure its elementary schools.  She says, next year, K-3 students will attend Hawthorne while 4-5 graders will go to George Washington Elementary.

Wolff says this will balance out class sizes and allow the district to close Wells Carey Elementary.
