The Great Move: Many Hands

posted Jul 12, 2016, 9:24 AM by Unknown user
The weekend of July 4th saw almost 170 volunteers descend on the new building at St. Ita! There were many wonderful volunteers from St Francis, Loyola Academy, and many of our school families and graduates. We scrubbed, repaired and painted for four solid days.

The asbestos abatement will be finished on July 13th. The carpet is laid and the move starts Monday, July 18th. 

We are beginning to see daylight on this project, but there is still much more to do! There are still issues in the building with broken windows, mold and general cleaning. We continue to need help to finish painting the preschool and the art rooms and finish work in the gym. Then there will be the daunting job of unpacking and setting everything up! 

The financial needs are still great! Below find a list of remaining needs to be sponsored. All main donors will be recognized on a plaque.

1 Classroom ($5,000 each)  Hallway Carpet ($14,000)
Cafeteria Furnishings ($15,000) 
Gym ($20,000) Student Scholarships ($3,200 per year)  Student Lockers (6 for $400)
Teacher Desk/Chair ($300 each)  Movers ($23,000) Dumpsters ($1,600)
Phone Lines, Internet and Security ($16,000)

Thanks to all of the people who have given their time and financial resources to make this a “work that is progressing”. Save the date for our Mass of Blessing on October 7th.
