WATERLOO (KWWL) - Students said goodbye to their second home.

The McKinstry Elementary Closing and Holiday Music Program was held Tuesday night. Families took tours, heard kids sing in the spirit of the holidays, and said goodbye to their school.

"This one is a little special to us. I think we're going to see some tears as the 4th and 5th graders sing our final songs," said Dr. Mary Jo Wagner, McKinstry Principal.

The school replacing McKinstry is called Highland Elementary. It's under construction on Independence Ave. The school costs almost 14-million dollars, and is slated to open in January.
