We are nearing the final stages of construction of the gym, and it feels like we're really on a roll now. We hung 2,400 square feet of 3/4” plywood on Nov. 8, completing about 40% of the lower walls. Having the hands-on support of our parents, alumni & alumni parents, faculty, staff and students has been especially meaningful. To capitalize on this momentum, we will have another workday on Saturday, November 22, from 9:00am to 12:30pm.
