New School Campaign
Why this project? Why now?
DISPERSED CAMPUS: Weather, transition time and access to common areas are all challenges of our current campus.
SAFETY AND SECURITY: A new facility will provide one point of entry for guests and enable better safety supervision.
COSTLY REPAIRS: Upgrades to the current building may no longer be cost effective in concert with other structural issues.
SYSTEM LIFE SPAN: Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems of the current building have reached their useful life.
OUTDOOR PLAY: Our current campus lacks soft play areas and is largely conducted on parking lot pavement.
MAKING GREAT STRIDES
In January and February, we met with several members of our community to hear their responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and insights for the campaign moving forward. We got resounding enthusiasm and support for the campaign, and we moving ahead with fundraising and building planning. Our team has also revised marketing materials for the campaign to reflect changes from what we have learned through the pandemic.
Our project has enough funds committed that we are now able to enter an exciting new phase of the project applying for grant funding and working on schematic design for the new school building. This spring will produce detailed building plans that enable our Building Committee to secure permits and contractors.
MOVING FORWARD IN PARTNERSHIP
As we navigate our plan over the next several months, please keep us in your prayers. We are confidently moving forward but
appreciate your support as we work to secure key partnerships that will make this project a success for St. Anthony students,
families, and staff.
