Lincoln Elementary expanding for overcrowding

November 11, 2013 (CHICAGO)

A new addition will be built for Abraham Lincoln Elementary School.

It has struggled with overcrowding for years.

The expansion will accommodate approximately 500 additional children and keep all grades at the school under one roof.

School officials say the additional space will also allow Lincoln Elementary to offer planned pre-K programs and full day kindergarten.
