Since its founding, Presbyterian School has grown steadily over the years in response to rising demand for its outstanding educational programs. Although this growth and success are cause for pride, they have also created a variety of facilities challenges for the School. Based on a comprehensive needs assessment by noted architectural firm Gensler, a new $25 million Campus Master Plan has been developed to address these needs. And in 2015, the Board of Trustees approved a capital campaign, Make Room for the Future, to fund this significant plan. As parents and co-chairs of the Make Room for the Future campaign, we feel compelled to support Presbyterian School in a significant way. The Make Room for the Future campaign will create, renovate, and endow spaces that will impact every child in our school every day they are with us. With the Campus Master Plan as our roadmap, Presbyterian School has identified creative solutions to their ongoing needs. The Make Room for the Future campaign is a giant step forward for the School. We are excited and stand ready to write the next historic chapter in the life of Presbyterian School.
Presbyterian School has impacted each member of our families in a multitude of ways. Between the two families, our six children have grown in the supportive and challenging learning environment that the School provides. Even for our children who have graduated and moved on to high school, the core beliefs and values that were instilled at Presbyterian School continue to influence them today. We feel strongly that the new and updated facilities are critical to the future of the School. At this time, we are happy to share that early fundraising efforts from the Board of Trustees, campaign leadership, parents, and foundations now total $12.3 million. And on behalf of our dedicated current parent campaign committee, we all look forward to sharing more exciting details with you as we break ground on the new building.
