NORTH LIBERTY– When you talk to principal Kristy Heffner about the upcoming Penn Elementary expansion, you can almost hear a sigh of relief.
“This is an awesome plan,” Heffner expressed about the recently approved design plans for the school’s 23,000 square foot addition. “We’re really excited about it.”
The Iowa City Community School District Board of Education approved the plan at their Dec. 17 meeting. The over $9.3 million project is slated to begin construction in the spring of 2014 according to the district’s 10- year facilities master plan.
