The Wantagh School District showcased two newly renovated art rooms at its middle school during a visit by New York State Sen. John Brooks on Oct. 4. Sen. Brooks secured $684,000 in state municipal grant funding for the district.

This past summer, two art rooms were completely refurbished with new ceilings and lighting, floors, cabinets and counters, electronic display boards and tables and chairs. The lightweight tables are on wheels and can easily be moved to create different seating arrangements.
