Campus Master Plan Moves Forward with Demolition of Empty Building

When classes resumed on January 7, students and parents queuing up for morning carline caught the first glimpse of the campus’s new look. Over the Christmas break, work began on the new baseball dugouts and, more noticeably, the demolition of the empty building near the middle school. The unused office building, affectionately called ‘the scary building’, was a left over from the previous life of our campus and never used for anything other than storage.

With the building now gone, the view from the hill has widened considerably and gives a sneak peek into how grand the improvements planned for our school will be over the next few years.

The current Master Plan for the campus includes redrawing the traffic pattern, additional parking, and creating a more welcoming main entrance for our families and visitors. The new entrance is planned to include a large circular drive featuring a fountain and beautifully crafted statue of St. Joseph, visually placing our Catholic identity front and center.
