Lethbridge Christian School kicks off expansion project with groundbreaking

The Lethbridge Christian School Society expansion project, 24 by 24, aims to raise $500,000 over five years to go towards the expansion of Lethbridge Christian School.

With that in mind, the society is encouraging a series of donations of $2,400 by 2024, to support the completion of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project by 2024.

Phase 1, at a cost of $1.8 million, includes architect fees, sprinkler system installation and the doubling of the gym. It also features additional office space, washrooms and four classrooms, including a science lab/art room, a kitchen/home economics room and added custodial storage. The target completion date for Phase 1 is August, 2020.

Phase 2, at a cost of $1.2 million, includes the removal of five portables to make room for five new classrooms, including a band room and literacy room, plus additional gym storage and breakout rooms. The target date for this phase is dependent on fundraising.

Friday’s groundbreaking ceremony included speeches  inside the gym, a shovel ceremony outside and a breakfast.

“LCS is excited to complete the original plan to have a full-size gym and surrounding classrooms that will form the final half of our structure,” said LCS principal Les Greeno. “This will enable us to eventually get rid of our existing portables and allow us to have room for more options, classrooms, offices and student support rooms. We look forward to what God will do in our completed building and wish to thank all of those who started the dream of a Faith-based Christian school, supported us thus far, and who will continue to keep it going.”
