Oklahoma's only elementary school designed specifically for homeless children is celebrating the first day of a new school year. And there are some big, exciting changes at Positive Tomorrows this year.

On Thursday, the school debuted its new Pre-k classroom.

For years, Positive Tomorrows says they've been forced to turn students away due to lack of space. With this new Pre-K expansion, the school is able to accommodate 10 more students per day for a total of 75 children.

The school also has special programs to help homeless children stay in school and learn. Case managers are on hand to help families improve housing, employment, and income levels.
