Update on Development of New Campus
The Lord has blessed us with a strong start to the first three weeks of school, and we continue to be overwhelmed through God’s goodness with such incredible families and students.
We are especially thankful for the Lord providing excellent new faculty, new programming, and facility upgrades. I am often reminded that not all schools are blessed with the kinds of resources we have and am most appreciative for our families’ level of trust and giving to the school.
Many of you know that we make excellent use of the 66 acres on the corner of Johnson Street and Sandy Ridge Road for field trips, Cross Country practice, meets, Trojan Trot, Lacrosse practice, Lee’s Legacy Run, and recently converted the beautiful barn to an indoor batting cage for the baseball and softball teams. We are so pleased to share that one of the extraordinary blessings we received this summer was a very generous gift to the capital campaign that will help expedite the land and recreational development of the new campus.
Many of you know we have been in the quiet phase of the campaign for the past two years and have been blessed with lead gifts in order to begin the site development, construction of recreational areas, and some of the athletic fields. We have carefully refined this phase of the process with much input and help from strategic partners. We will continue to meet with families and friends to raise the needed funds to incorporate as much of the programming as possible in this phase. It is our hope that the Lord will allow all the approvals, permits, and final funding so we can break ground this spring or summer.
Finally, there is one more rezoning request that has been filed with the city and neighborhood meetings will occur much sooner than expected. This is good and encouraging news.
On behalf of our school board and administration, we are once again humbled with God’s faithfulness and blessings throughout our campus and especially through your amazing children. Sooner than expected, the Lord has in store some tremendous opportunities and creative programming for your children thanks to such kind parents and donors.
As always, we appreciate and covet your prayers as we seek the Lord’s guidance and favor in all that we endeavor to accomplish for your children. Our 46th year promises to be another fruitful and blessed year!
