High School Gym Renovation
Please Join Us
The High School Gym will be open for viewing on October 8 between 5:30-7:30 p.m. This is a special opportunity to see the completed renovations.
The high school gym has served as a major focal point on our campus for nearly 45 years. In addition to housing our sports teams and P.E. classes, the gym has hosted hundreds of other events including stage productions, Senior Class Nights, band concerts, lock-ins, assemblies, parent-teacher conferences, Alumni potlucks, Family Volunteer Nights, free health clinics, and church activities, to name a few. On average, 20,000 people use our gym facilities throughout the year.
Since its opening in 1971, the gym remained largely unchanged. Both the boys' and girls' locker rooms had the same configuration, the same lockers, the same benches, the same (temperamental) showers, and the same (inaccessible) bathroom stalls. The coaches’ offices were squished into tiny spaces with barely enough room for a desk. The building itself had no air conditioning which means from May through September, indoor temperatures rise well above 90 degrees.
