Clear Creek ISD held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly completed James H. Ross Elementary School, according to an Oct. 26 news release from the district.

The school was renovated as part of the district's 2017 bond project. The school was originally constructed in 1965 and was one of seven schools older than 50 years to be part of the bond, according to the release.

The renovations include new classrooms, furniture, lighting and new technology, according to the release. Other changes include converting a library out of an old gym, and a new administration wing.

“What a dream come true to stand here before you in this beautiful new space for this very special occasion,” Principal Kelly Mooney said in the release. “Today is much more than just a celebration of the tangible accomplishments you will see walking through the halls, but also the tireless work that has gone on behind the scenes from our staff, parents, students, community and construction crew.”
