GIFFORD — The Gifford Grade School gymnasium floor will be sanded and refinished, the gym will be repainted, and basketball equipment will be added this summer.

The floor work will include sanding, adding new lines, the center logo and the "Home of the Eagles" and "Gifford" lettering.

The school board approved a $19,900 bid from Carroll Seating of Elk Grove Village for basketball equipment, including goals, electric hoists and manual backboard height adjusters.

Stalker Flooring submitted a $11,750 bid to sand and refinish the flooring this summer and help with moisture issues in the gym.

Superintendent Rod Grimsley said the painting will be done by school staff.
