Students’ names and messages covered the whole space with everything from quotes and signatures, to noting just who loved who more.

But the graffiti, sprawled across at least a few classroom walls, wasn’t an act of vandalism. It was one of the last acts by students in a school building they would never attend classes in again, let alone step in, as they prepared to move to the new FCHS.

Students also spent their last two days of school, May 18 and 19, moving items to the new school, located on County Road P43, just around the corner from the old building.

About 90 percent of the work was done Monday, with just a little more done Tuesday, activities director Nick Wemhoff said.

The items that students and staff didn’t move were auctioned on Wednesday. Auction proceeds weren’t available by press time. The Auction Solutions website listed about 140 items that were auctioned.
