Since the February 2019 kickoff of our fundraising effort to support safety and security enhancement projects, our Greenwood community, partners, and friends have contributed over $20,000 toward our goals! We are grateful for all of your support—but there is more work remaining to accomplish.
We are continuing these efforts for 2019-2020 by re-launching the Annual Fund campaign—from now until May 31, 2020, all Annual Fund gifts will be designated for fulfillment of one of these three projects:
- Replacement of our fire detection and monitoring system: our current system is rapidly becoming obsolete, and changes in fire codes will require replacement of not only the control panel, but also the 50 annunciators and strobes throughout the campus.
Total cost: $42,689 Progress to date: $20,500 raised!
- Campus security and access control: construction of an electronic access gate to properly secure the parking lot entrance, and installation of ID card-activated locks on building and classroom doors.
Total cost estimate: $50,000
- New student lockers throughout the building: we will replace all student lockers for safety, efficiency of space, and ease of student access (electronic locks that work with their ID cards).
Total cost estimate: $50,000
The Greenwood Team has committed ourselves to leading the way in these efforts—100% of the Greenwood School Board of Trustees and 100% of the Greenwood School Administrative Staff have already contributed to the 2019-2020 campaign! Please join us by clicking the “Donate” button below!
