Morgan Slatten/Fulton Sun The Fulton Public Schools Board of Education members and administration cut the ribbon at Saturday's open house event. The district is hoping to begin construction on the new kindergarten center soon.

On Saturday, Fulton High School held an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony to introduce the community to the newly constructed gymnasium.

As a result of Proposition S bond that was passed by voters last year, this project has been one of many that has been completed at the high school.

Superintendent Ty Crane gave comments on the renovations of the gymnasium; speaking on what it means for the students to have this gym and possibly future projects.

"This gym will be something to be proud of; not only showing the quality of our school, but the importance of athletics to the community," Crane said.

He feels that high school athletics are an important part of high school life, and the construction of this gym shows the community recognizing that importance.

"Athletics are important, but we have made improvements to numerous other facilities," said Crane.

Elementary and middle school parking lots have been improved, with the high school parking lot planning on being completed; along with construction to classrooms and entrances into the schools.

"Under all these improvements, us as a school must thank the community. This was only possible through your voting and approval," Crane said.

The improvements to the school are a benefit to the students that go there, and there is more planning to be done.

"The high school parking lot will be done soon. Hopefully, construction can be started on the new kindergarten center," Crane said.

Many improvements are constantly being made to the school and many of the facilities will look different compared to what it was.

The gym is able to sit over 1,000, and volleyball nets descend from the ceiling.
