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 Anniversary, we have launched the Campaign for St. Patrick’s at Sixty. The Campaign has supported the creation of a new MacArthur Campus facility, designed for an innovative Grades 6, 7, and 8 program. We are creating exciting new outdoor spaces on the Whitehaven Campus by redeveloping the Nursery School and Kindergarten Playgrounds and adding a Sports Deck adjacent to the Gymnasium and Performance Center. Indoors at the Whitehaven Campus, we have installed side-by-side Design and Collaboration Labs for students and faculty to promote curiosity, creativity, and shared problem-solving. The playgrounds and indoor Whitehaven spaces will be available in the fall of 2018 for the benefit of our students and teachers. The Sports Deck work will begin in spring 2019.

St. Patrick’s is proud to be an inclusive, caring community where all are invested in the education and development of our students. 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 for St. Patrick's at Sixty as well as in the Annual Fund. Thank you for making St. Patrick’s ever stronger, healthier, and more vibrant as we anticipate a vital and successful future.
