Invitation to Action: Providing More Safety to our Campus

Hello Brother Knights,

I have debated on whether or not to send this out to everyone. Please see below the note from Sr. John Paul regarding a fundraiser for the school.

I know there are many places to donate right now in the Church especially with what is going on. However, please pray and consider whether or not you are able help in this fundraiser for the school/Church at this time.

Again there are many needs in the Church today but if you are able to donate even $10 (a couple of cups of coffee or a couple beers worth) we will be able to raise over $2,000 for this effort with the over 200 members we have. No dollar amount is too small and if you have donated already, thank you.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and God Bless,

Brother Melfi

>> Dear St. Michael Parents,
>>
>> St. Michael would earnestly like to replace the current back fence on our playground area to fill in a large car-sized hole and to add a visual barrier for increased safety. The fence will join an additional fence to line the playground perimeter for added boundaries during recess.
>>
>> The project will benefit our parish and school community with fencing that contains a windshield, to limit our campus from outside viewing in a time of increased day traffic as more people are staying at home.
>>
>> There will be a gate on the fence that opens on the ballfield facing the parking lot to allow ample room for vehicles and festival equipment to access as usual. The gates will be manual gates, instead of motorized gates to reduce costs.
>>
>> The project also includes replacing the current access gate near the gym doors with a new access gate moved to a different location. The new gate will be placed by the speed bump nearest the back lot to create a joined enclosure during the school day. The movement of the gate will effectively expand the area used for recess on a regular basis.
>>
>> The gate will also feature the Saint Michael name and image of the Archangel to represent our parish and school patron. Please see the attached for photos and a description of the project.
>>
>> I am grateful to Fr. Dinovo for his permission to pursue this project. Special thanks to our St. Michael School Advisory Board members for making this a goal, especially Chris Meyers for lending his architectural skills with the proposal made that led to receiving the zoning permission from Worthington City to build.
>>
>> We are asking for donations to achieve our goal of $34,900 without utilizing our parish or school budget during this year. We are also applying for a grant to help fund this project with The Catholic Foundation.
>>
>> To donate, please visit our “Bridge the Gap” page here or make a check payable to St. Michael School noting the fence project in the memo line.
>>
>> Our goal is to raise the funds by December 18. We have an amazing history of achieving these types of projects together. Thank you for praying for the success of this safety addition to our campus.
>>
>> If you have any questions, I would love to hear from you.
>>
>> God bless you,
>>
