The Pontotoc City School District invites the public to an open house on Tuesday evening, September 13, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. to tour the newly renovated Pontotoc Junior High School Gym. The project included complete upgrading to the historic basketball gym, the gym floor, new rest room and concession facilities, courtside handicapped sitting areas, new lighting and heating, new locker rooms, new equipment rooms and new player rest rooms. “The open house is a come and go event,” said Pontotoc City School Superintendent of Education Dr. Michelle Bivens (pictured above), who was watching artist and City School District testing and academic technology coordinator Dr. Felicia Pollard paint a replication of the center court Warrior mascot. The school district utilized COVID Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations to finance the renovations. The basement area of the gym was renovated into a new classroom and the adjacent Middle School Auditorium is being renovated into the Junior High School Band Hall.
