An elementary school on the North Side is celebrating going green. John Coonley Elementary School is under construction and the community is excited about that. The plan is for the new green campus to be ready for students this fall.

Among the improvements: a new library, a media resource center and a community green space.

Lawmakers, Chicago Public Schools and the Coonley elementary local school council all worked together to make this project happen.
