Financial savings made wishes come true for the new Iola Elementary School.

USD 257 school board members and administrators finalized their “wish list” of construction items for the new school, after learning of the savings they’ll get with the third and final part of the voter-approved school bond project.

The list includes things like additional parking, a multipurpose room and equipment in the gymnasium, a walking trail extension, and additional classroom storage.
