We have three Fund It initiatives for our 2020 auction. Click through for more information!
- New projectors for classroom and a new set of iPads for primary grades:
Our classroom projectors were installed in early the early 2000’s during the last building remodel. The lumens (projection brightness) are low or have degraded on many of them so they are no longer sufficient for use with our current document cameras, projection of videos and leading edge technology required for today’s standard lessons. We’d love to replace them with the updated efficiency found in today’s highest quality classroom models.
A new set of iPads: Our primary grades presently share 15 iPads. If a teacher’s lesson necessitates an entire 1:1 set, it requires scheduling to borrow additional platforms from the intermediate grades’ iPad cart. We would like to buy at least 15 new units to better serve the needs of the primary grades.
- Feasibility Study for the House of Prayer:
Due to years of deferred maintenance and design and infrastructure elements from a much earlier era, the House of Prayer is the most underutilized building on our parish campus. Parish and school programing is in great need of additional space for the expansion of educational and community service programs. The Parish/School Facilities Task Force – Phase 1 Campus Master Plan recommended examining all options for use of the building with a focus on creating additional space for use by the school (e.g., preschool and expanded day options.) The first step in the process is to hire a team to study and recommend short-term and long-term structural and mechanical needs.
- Upgraded audio system for Banchero Hall:
When Banchero Hall was built, a sound system was installed to handle voice projection for meetings and presentations. With increased use of the Hall, each year we are finding that significant expense is incurred to borrow, rent or purchase needed enhancements for events such as the Christmas Pageant, drama productions, dances and auction needs. An upgraded and enhanced sound system will help ensure quality audio, eliminating relying on outside systems to meet a wide variety of sound needs.
