Move in day at Van Buskirk

Posted: Updated:

After a monsoon storm damaged a whole wing at Van Buskirk Elementary School. Just 2 months after the incident, the wing has been fixed and students and teachers are moving into their classrooms.

Over 40 volunteers showed up to the school over the weekend. They came from the University of Arizona, local churches and local businesses. They moved tons of furniture, from desks to boxes of books and supplies.

It was back in July, that a storm hit the area of Park and Fair. The school was one of the hardest hit places in the area. The roof was ripped off and landed in the parking lot. Some of the classrooms were flooded.

Within the last two months, crews have fixed the roof and classrooms. To make the wing that was damaged look brand new.

On Monday, the students will be back in their regular classrooms for the first time this year.
