John Marcos Morales Cruz, 9, and Jasmya Martin, 10, cut the ribbon to open the new addition to Park Avenue Elementary School in Auburn on Monday. Construction of two second-floor classrooms and a group area began June 26 and was completed on Friday. Because of a lack of classrooms, Amy Heimerl’s third-grade class and Emily Marean’s fourth-grade class were moved into the music and art rooms during construction. “Music and art were squeezed into a very small space. They are happy to be back in their own rooms,” Principal Lila Mitchell said. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal Buy this Photo
