St. Martha’s Refresh Recap

Who doesn’t love a good HGTV-style, before-and-after reveal? If so, then this is the blog post for you!

St. Martha’s sweet, 1960’s school and parish, tucked into our nostalgic Hikes Point neighborhood, is beloved. Our campus holds so many memories for families – many of whom who are now sending their 2nd or 3rd generation students to our school.

But with age, comes the need for some repairs, refreshing and just sprucing up! We want our environment to share the same energy, passion and love for our school and parish that we do!

Here’s a look back at the past year – the projects we’ve completed or gotten underway thanks to our generous parent volunteers and to those who support all of our fundraising efforts and make these projects possible!

September 2018 – A team of parents, organized by the PTO, put together some proposed ways we could “spruce up” various areas of the school leveraging PTO funds from 2017-18 fundraisers

November 2018 – A team of parent volunteers took on a complete refresh of the school office, including a weekend of painting, commissioning new art, purchasing new entryway furniture and seating, and building an “info wall.”

November 2018New windows on the front of the school are installed!.

December 2018 – As part of an Eagle Scout project, alumni, Andrew Weihe and family took on a complete remodel of the teacher’s lounge. (And a brand-new fridge was donated this summer!)

February 2019 – A couple parent volunteers put their Circuit machines to work to create inspirational quotes on stalls of all our boys and girls bathrooms!

April 2019 – New landscaping spruces up the school facade!

June 2019 – New campus sign is installed!

August 2019 – A new sidewalk for the pre-school entrance is poured, more landscaping in front of school, newly landscaped Right to Life Grotto outside of church, new etched glass logo on entry door and signage above classroom doors, AND newly painted hallways, just to name a few!

August 2019 – Phase 1 of the Outdoor Classroom complete! Much more to come, including a structure to cover the table and ways to use the space with some of our Outdoor Learning grants.

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”
