Those in attendance at Curriculum Night this year were greeted with a hand fan that invited everyone to help us beat the heat in the Student Center. For those who were not in attendance, here’s the message behind the fans: We are in the final push for our capital campaign, “Setting Our Course for the Future.” As a community, we have accomplished so much through this campaign, including the addition of Tankersley Hall, a new lower school Science and Language Classroom, renovated administrative offices and reception area, and an amazing launch to our STEM Initiative. What remains is the funding for air conditioning for our Student Center, the activity hub of our campus. Our Student Center is a busy place, serving as the location for P.E. classes, sports practices and games, weekly chapel services, fine arts productions, parent gatherings, school functions, and occasional use by the church. As we welcome visitors to various events, we cross our fingers that the weather will cooperate and that the temperatures in the facility will stay at a relatively comfortable level. At this time of the year, as well as at the end of the year, conditions in the gym are just plan HOT. So what will it take to make air conditioning a reality? If we are able to raise at least $125,000, we can make this happen.
We are so grateful for those families who have already participated in the Capital Campaign, making the new physical and curriculum improvements possible. The opportunity remains, however, for everyone to be a part of making “phase 2” possible. Your participation, at the level right for your family, will help us to achieve our goal. Your donation, earmarked for the Capital Campaign, will make a difference. As the fan says, let’s beat the heat together!
