Mount de Sales Hoping to Build New Middle School | Education
Title (Max 100 Characters)
Mount de Sales hopes to break ground on a $3.6 million middle school in June of next year.
School president David Held told parents at a parents night assembly Wednesday, the private school is relaunching a capital drive that started in 2008, around the same time as the recession started.
Held said they need the space because middle school classes are growing.
But since 2008, they've scaled down the project, cutting the cost of construction from $4.7 million to $3.6 million.
Mount de Sales has raised $2.2 million already and has an anonymous donor who has committed 500-thousand if parents match that.
The school would be built off College Street.
