At Frank Rushton Elementary, students aren’t just getting new boxes of pencils and crayons. They’re getting a whole new school.
"Compared to the other building, it’s really nice,” says parent Ayesha Marks. “I like the library upgrade with the computer and books and everything.”
“It’s awesome,” says third-grader Gianni Ramos of the school. “It’s much bigger and has more space.”
A lot more space. The old building, near the intersection of 43rd and Rainbow Ave., was jam-packed.
