The current windows are terrible and need to be replaced.
Found out about this from Councilman Parker Agelasto’s Facebook. It certainly would be nice to see all the neighborhood associations throw in a little cash to insure that Patrick Henry continues to be a viable option for neighborhood children.
Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts (PHSSA) has undertaken an “Adopt a Window” program to replace/rehab ALL of the windows of the school building. This will enhance the energy efficiency (and curbside appeal!) at an estimated cost of $600,000.
All donations are tax-deductible. Large windows can be adopted for $2,000 and the small basement windows for $1,000. Donations cover a substantial portion of the total cost of the renovation and also will be used as matching funds for requests to the MMP Foundation and the Calder Foundation (pending request for a $100,000 grant).
The school has commitments from John Jacquemin Foundation for $10,000 and board members; so far totaling $18,000. If you are interested in adopting a window, please contact Board Member Deborah Corliss (email@example.com) or school Principal, Dr. Eileen Atkinson (firstname.lastname@example.org). PHSSA (a 501c(3) corporation) also can provide a “pledge letter” that would let you pay over a 6-month period. In addition to the tax deduction, those who adopt a window will be recognized by a name plaque on the window so it will be known who provided the new windows.
