Because of the project’s central location on campus, we were easily able to take advantage of the construction work and involve the entire school community from day one – and from the moment the kids stepped out of the car in the morning.

    Community engagement is important to us. Leading by example, Chris Floyd and his family recently volunteered at Cradles to Crayons. Following their volunteer experience, they “adopted” three kids through the organization and were responsible for providing them with a winter wardrobe.
