Excerpts from the Frequently Asked Questions segment for the capital campaign:
WHAT IS ST. MARY’S LONG-TERM VISION FOR OUR SCHOOL, CONSIDERING NEARBY PARISH SCHOOLS? St. Mary’s is in the heart of Old Towne Bellevue. The parish has been leading souls to Christ for almost 100 years. We believe that we are called to continue that tradition through our evangelization and being faithful followers of the Gospel message. Fr. Del has been here less than 2 years and is very proud of the school and its mission. He is committed wholeheartedly to ensuring the longevity of the school community for many years to come. Each school has a unique culture and climate. Our school does a wonderful job providing a Catholic education that nurtures students’ hearts and minds to become servant leaders in an ever changing world. We are especially proud of being able to meet the needs of such a diverse student population, including military dependents.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU PLANNING TO RENOVATE AT THE SCHOOL? The heating and cooling system of the entire building needs to be upgraded and integrated to a more uniform system. The environment in the school building affects the learning process for everyone involved. To teach properly room temperature needs to be kept comfortable. Students can focus on learning if they are comfortable. We are planning on improving and updating the lighting and ceiling tiles throughout the building to be more uniformly aesthetic. The restrooms are will be modernized. The restrooms will get a comprehensive look to ensure that any renovations to them will last into the next century. This will provide a more pleasant atmosphere to accommodate everyone’s basic needs.
