 Chillicothe R-2 School Superintendent Dr. Roger Barnes gives a tour of the new Chillicothe Elementary School to members of the school board and district staff Thursday afternoon. Barnes decribed much of the functions that the building would have, from the flow between classes to the lunch room and the gymnasium, to the pre-school areas, kindergarten classrooms and the first grade area. Through the windows of the building, one can see the outdoor playgrounds which are mostly complete.
