The auditorium in our 70-year-old school building lacks air conditioning, which often makes our meetings and events uncomfortable. Installing a new HVAC system for the entire building will also provide air conditioning to the kitchen and heat to the library, benefiting school and religious education students as well as parishioners and visitors. We will also upgrade the electrical system and replace classroom windows where necessary.
In the mid-1990s a science lab was established in the red brick building. Renovating and upgrading our science lab with new technology will allow us to create a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) center. In this STEM and Maker space lab students will explore engineering and coding, robotics, and 3D design and modeling. Our science lab will be a space in which students work collaboratively using design thinking to invent, build and test prototypes in response to real world problems, documenting their process through storytelling, filming, podcasting, and a variety of other media.
More and more churches are streaming the hymns and parts of the Mass on monitor screens placed on the side walls of the nave and side chapels. Installing video equipment, screens and an operation unit will enable us to stream the words of hymns as well as close-ups of significant events such as First Holy Communion and Confirmation onto monitors to increase participation and interest.
Our school perimeter is secured by an 8-foot tall chain link fence. Installing new and electric gates at the four driveway entrances and adjusting the existing fencing will enhance access as well as security.
