$250,000 Matching Gift

If you have been by the school this week you will have noticed a whole bunch of trees have disappeared. Our land extends over forty feet beyond what looked like our property line. The trees were growing where we plan to have parking alongside the new gymnasium. Everyday more progress is happening in the construction for our new gymnasium. It is so exciting. Please continue to support this project. We still have a lot of matching dollars available.
