Of course, along with this growth comes overcrowdedness in the schools. Since a new school is out of the question this year, the next best thing to alleviate the overcrowdedness are mobile school units. The 5th grade classes of Huntley Grade School moved into the mobile units (located on the west side of the school), the first day of school, August 25th. The students and teachers are looking forward to a unique year in the mobile units "outback".
