The 9,400-square-foot building on the north side of the school along 15th Street houses a new cafeteria and kitchen, a music classroom that can be converted into a stage, indoor gym, and two basketball hoops in a covered play area that’s adjacent to the gym. The inside can be turned into one big gathering space.
