Patrick Henry School started on just one floor. It quickly expanded to two floors and then had to add to modular units in the parking lot. There is still an unused third floor in the building but it’s in need of serious renovation work. As we all know renovation work isn’t cheap. The work is estimated to cost $30,000. In order to help cover the cost the school has started its own fundraising effort.

In order for us to better serve our community, we need to be able to access all of our classrooms. Currently, we are in a historic school building with fully operational classrooms on the first two floors and modular units outside. We have also have third floor that is in need of a major renovation in order to house students. We can only fully realize our mission by accessing this critical space.

Here’s how we will achieve this

We’ve officially launched our ‘Growing Potential’ campaign, where we seek to fundraise the necessary capital to fully renovate our third floor. We’ve built a unique coalition of parents and community supporters to help in our efforts and are taking a multi-faceted approach to make this happen. While our total cost is estimated at $3.5 million, we are chunking our fundraising plan into smaller benchmarks, using all amounts donated directly toward the renovation.
