(WICHITA, Kan.) — The first day of school was a day of discovery for students and parents at one of Wichita's newest schools.
"I'm excited about it," said Aubrey Mentis whose son is in second grade at the new Dodge Literacy Magnet Elementary.
Classes started Wednesday in a new building. The school was rebuilt with money from the 2008 school bond issue that Wichita voters passed.
"All in all, I really love what our taxpayer money is going toward at the new school," says Mentis.
He's talking about the new classrooms, the new library, the parking lot and the new gym that's no longer part of the cafeteria.
The cafeteria not only has its own space but it's own name. It will now be known as "The Dodge Diner."
