Rockmart High School students might have a new theater space to utilize before the Class of 2025 is graduating, at least based on the current pace of construction on campus during a stretch of good weather since the first shovel was tossed on the project back in May.

One of the highlights of the 2021 ESPLOST Extension projects for the Polk School District was to bring a Fine Arts building just as good to Rockmart High School as the one added onto Cedartown High. Though detached from the rest of the school due to the roadway in between, the building will be just as fine as planners expected it to be once completed.

Months ago in late July construction workers were still working on laying out foundations and installing some of the utilities, but in the proceeding months the walls have been steadily climbing to their final height. Though some portions of the building have not yet matched the others.

A lot of work is still left to go before RHS will be hosting any performances in their new theater or be able to utilize the class space, but so long as no major delays hamper construction it should be done by the end of 2024 at the latest.

The R.K. Redding Construction-headed project is just one of many that have taken place over the past months at RHS.

An expansion of the parking lot for students and for use for spectators for athletics competition was completed before the start of the school year, and modular units have also gone up on campus matching those at other campuses across the district in need of additional classroom space.
