Proctor students will have new classrooms when they head back to school Tuesday. The first phase of a construction project is ready for students at Bay View Elementary School.

There's 16 new classrooms in this addition, giving students a lot more room to learn.

"Just the window and the space and its bigger and it just inviting for the kids to come in," said Sarah Urie, a teacher at Bay View. "Our rooms were very small and very outdated. With the new technology and everything, it's something we really needed."

With the addition, a secure entrance for the school was also added. Students will now have to be buzzed in by the front desk. 

The second phase of the project will be ready in January. A new addition will replace the portion of the school dating back to 1917.
