Story about the news conference I held last week to unveil the layout of the building that will remove classroom trailers at PS 143 in Corona.

New 5-Story Building at P.S. 143 To Replace Trailers With Labs and Art Room

State Sen. Jose Peralta, who has worked for years with the Parent Teacher Association at the school, said he hopes the new building will make overcrowding at the school “a chapter in its history.”

“Almost one thousand new seats to replace the mini building and the run-down trailers will help our students learn in the environment they deserve. It will give them a better opportunity to succeed,” Peralta said in a statement.
