Gwen O'Neal is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Baker School District's youngest students at her school when classes begin next fall.

O'Neal is the principal at Brooklyn Primary where preparations are beginning to make way for three modular buildings that will provide the needed space to add kindergartners. The school currently houses 336 students in Grades 1-3.

Another 111 students are enrolled in kindergarten classes that are now housed in the northwest wing of Baker High School.

O'Neal told the Baker School Board during its Tuesday night session that she expects enrollment to remain at about the same level in the coming year.

"We're just excited," she said. "And I want to thank the board for listening to our desire to bring the kindergarten (staff and students) together with their peers."
