Paragould Primary School showcases new building

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)- Media Day was held at the new Primary Building in Paragould Thursday.

One-on-one tours were given with media representatives explaining the many different features of the new facility. The building is energy efficient with motion sensored lights in the room and sky-lights providing natural lighting.

The gym has about an inch of rubberized surface in the flooring, making it safer on knees and ankles. The feature that teachers are most excited about is all the space.

1st Grade Teacher, Karen Bowers, said, "We were really crowded. The special teachers, a lot of them didn't have a place for a class and so it was really needed."

In addition, teachers can now use mobile labs, interactive projectors and a laminator for each school wing.
