Principal’s take: “We use every little nook and cranny,” said Andrew J. Winter, Lucy V. Barnsley principal. “We have art on a cart and music on a cart for our part-time teachers and two teachers share the gym for P.E. some days.”

The school has 10 portables where all the fourth-graders are housed and Winter said he is hopeful that, after a feasibility study was done last year for a 12-room addition to the school, the school will be funded for the extra classrooms.

“Morale, overall, I think, is pretty good,” he said.
