Thank you for supporting the Annual Appeal
Annual Appeal 2021-22
Each year, we present to our stakeholders’ opportunities to make a positive impact on the faith-based education provided at Scotus Central Catholic. This fall, I ask for your support to address a several urgent needs.
1) This fall we had the unplanned expense of taking down the trees on the southside of campus—they were damaging the school’s sewer line and sidewalk. ($10,000)
2) With the tree removal and work the city was already performing on the street, we decided to construct of an off-street drop-off zone for students and add parking spaces for staff and guests, all where the trees were located. ($45,000)
3) We need to make needed enhancements to the heating of the girls’ locker room and add heating to the hallway of the Dowd Center. ($10,000) and,
4) With the breakdown of our coach bus at the state soccer tourney last spring, we really need to address our bus transportation system and make it safe and reliable. We plan to lease 2 large new busses over a 5-year period at a total cost of $205,950. With a very generous lead gift from John’69 & Delena McLaughlin of $100,000, we hope you will support this very important need and help us add to the bus fund an additional ($40,000.) Additional money will be raised annually to meet our current lease payments and create a new down payment balance to allow Scotus to again lease 2 new busses in 2026–keeping the plan sustainable.
Your support will also allow Scotus to keep important resources directed to the faith development, education, and activities we offer for our students. God bless you for your past support and for making a difference, today!
