Plumsteadville, PA (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
Friday, June 13, 2014 may have been Plumstead Christian School’s last school day before their summer vacation, but it also marked the beginning of an exciting multi-million dollar facility expansion. Plumstead Christian School administration, school board, and other friends of PCS gathered behind the current school building in Plumsteadville, PA for a groundbreaking ceremony. Also present at the groundbreaking were Dan Hilferty, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Plumstead Township and Margaret McKevitt, Coordinator, Economic Development and Planning Services representing Bucks County.
Mr. Patrick Fitzpatrick, Plumstead Christian School’s headmaster, welcomed the crowd and introduced Mr. Rick Millham, the school’s chairman of the board. Rick talked about the 66 year history of the school and the positive impact that the school has been on several generations of students. He also reaffirmed the commitment that Plumstead Christian School has to provide a caring environment where students are taught to think biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives. Mr. Millham’s prayer of dedication was followed a reception in the school’s newly renovated library.
Work on the site improvements began shortly after the ground breaking ceremony, and projected completion of the 3.2 million dollar addition is August, 2015. The new addition adds a second, larger gymnasium including theater space, new restroom facilities, and a spacious lobby.
“We have strong athletic and fine arts programs that have always had to juggle one multi-purpose space,” says Patrick Fitzpatrick. “Having a larger second gymnasium with a state-of-the-art theater space will allow both of these programs to grow in excellence in facilities for students, our PCS family, and the community to enjoy. While many schools are cutting back on athletics and performing arts, Plumstead Christian School views these as essential co-curricular activities that profoundly and positively shape the lives of their students."
