Campaign for St. Patrick's at Sixty

Dear Friends:

The words active, growing, and changing capture St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School’s aspirations for our educational program - as well as for our talented students and their dedicated teachers. St. Patrick’s is a dynamic institution ready to seize opportunities to extend and enhance our program through improved educational facilities that will provide even more effective settings for teaching and learning.

In honor of our 60th Aniversary, we are launching the Campaign for St. Patrick’s at Sixty. The Campaign will support the creation of a new MacArthur Campus facility, designed for an innovative grade 6, 7, and 8 program. (link to page describing New MacArthur project). We will create exciting new outdoor spaces on the Whitehaven Campus by redeveloping the Nursery School and Kindergarten playgrounds as well as adding a sports deck adjacent to the Gymnasium and Performance Center. And, inside at the Whitehaven Campus, we will create side-by-side Design and Collaboration Labs for students and faculty to promote curiosity, creativity, and shared problem-solving. (link to page describing Whitehaven improvements). The Whitehaven spaces will be enhanced next year for our students' enjoyment.

As an Episcopal school, equity, inclusion, and service are hallmarks of the St. Patrick’s education and form the identity of our invested, caring community. We are excited that the campaign will strengthen the current educational experience of our students and secure St. Patrick’s position as one of the Washington, D.C. area’s preeminent independent schools well into the future. We welcome the Campaign as an opportunity to celebrate our school as a community where everyone participates and shares their gifts as they are able. We are grateful for this dedication to St. Patrick’s and the progress it allows us to make.

We hope that everyone in our community will participate in the Campaign in addition to the Annual Fund. Please take advantage of the opportunity to see our new Middle School space at the Annual Fund and Campaign kickoff at Green & White Night on Friday, September 22, 2017 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Click here if you plan to attend. Thank you for making St. Patrick’s ever stronger, healthier, and more vibrant as we anticipate a vital and successful future.
