Ariton School is gearing up for a major makeover with a $4 million expansion project. Over the past 30 years, student numbers have nearly tripled, prompting the need for more space.

The project will add four classrooms, a bigger cafeteria, and a band room. Officials, along with community members, SGA representatives, and excited students, broke ground on Tuesday, marking the beginning of a new era for the Purple Cats.
