, a catholic school in Idaho Falls, is in the process of getting a big facelift thanks to a significant donation.
A $200,000 donation was given to the school by an anonymous donor.
“The generosity is unbelievable to me, and the fact that the generosity is such a huge part of this, I can’t say thank you enough. I am so grateful that this family values education, values children, puts this money towards what they believe is best for children” said school principal Carina VanPelt.
The $200,000 will be spread out to bring in a new computer lab, a state of the art security system, a new playground, dry-erase boards and many other things.
Students will also be able to receive partial scholarships to be able to attend the school.
“Deciding where the money went was a very big part of this project, a lot of planning and thought and consideration went into each part of every dollar that was spent” continued VanPelt.
Even a house across the street from the school was purchased to hold robotics classes every morning with the students.
“I can’t wait for all the of the families and students to come back and see it because I couldn’t even announce it before school was out because I didn’t even know about it until right at the end of school, and so it’s going to be a great surprise for everybody” said VanPelt.
Everything that’s being installed and put in the school will be finished before the start of the school year.
The two areas the school focused on was safety for the children and curriculum enhancement.
