Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 03:58 PM CDT

For Glenwood Intermediate, over 700 5th and 6th graders have a newly renovated facility.

Even returning students showed up before the big day to learn their way around.

5th grader, Arianna Akers, and her mom arrived early to do some renovations of their own, adding wall paper and carpet to her locker; a big deal for her this year.

"I don't have to hold other people's stuff, I can just put it in my locker," Arianna Said.

But as for the school, new additions range from an expanded lobby area, to new class rooms and brand new gym bleachers.

Though, Glenwood Principal, Elizabeth Gregurich, says it's the new cafeteria students will love most.

"352 students are going to eat at the exact same time. They're going to get to mingle with their entire class," Gregurich said.

And as for the curriculum, schedules will be completely different for sixth graders as they'll nine-week on-core rotations, where they'll learn music, art, technology, and speech and drama this year."

Every student will work from a Google, Chromebook, replacing textbooks with apps as providing the best learning experience for students is first priority.
