Dr. Havens reports that att increase of 50 students is expected in the school this year, making Ihr total enrollment approximately .1,250, as contrasted with approximately $1,200 last year, This increase, he said, is the result of babies born in the mid •10's or the World War II and postwar ear. Temporary Classrooms The expected Increased enrollment is one of the reasons that temporary classrooms have been constructed in the school building. The other reason is the fact, I hat space is needed for student who formerly used classroom space created in residential structures across Whilelaw Avenue from the school. These buildings have been torn clown to make way for the new school building expected to be completed by fall, 1964. C. Wayne Stevens, buildings and grounds superintendent at the school, reports that four classrooms have been made by erecting temporary partitions in the former student lounge room. "In addition to those, we have also created four classrooms by partitioning sections of the former band practice rooms," he said. "Another room has been created by putting a partition in study hall 102 and thus dividing it and there is a temporary classroom in a residence at 715 Whitelaw Ave. This is another former home purchased by the school on t h e east side of Whitelaw, but leaving it standing will not interfere with proposed building plans. Wood Panels All of the temporary partitions have been made with wood panels that can be-removed and used at other locations when the need 'or the temporary rooms ends Stevens said. The shower rooms and offices in both the stadium and in memorial gym have been completely re-painted. A new parking lot has been created in the 800 block of Wood River Avenue on the west side of the street for school with an exit on Condit Street.
