It'll house new music and digital arts plus a cafeteria for the nearly 3,000 area kids.
"It's going to create a different avenue for our kids that we've never had in the past," said Steve Winkler. "We know that fine arts increases kids' capacity to learn in school, better behavior attendance wise. So, that's what we're trying to do here, make sure our kids are more successful."
Winkler says the new addition is expected to be finished just before Thanksgiving.
