Amazing Grace Academy students, families, church members and teachers recently enjoyed an evening celebration and fundraiser for a new gym floor. The annual auction was planned and coordinated by Home and School volunteers and lots of supporters who plan this fun event every year.
A few years ago, AGA built a gym attached to the school building knowing that the cement floor would be a temporary solution while planning and preparing for a wood floor.
Students, families and local community organizations generously donated items and services to the auction. Students made many delicious and beautiful desserts to auction and those items were the stars of the evening. The event was a success resulting in more than $18,000 raised for the new gym floor.
With money raised at the auction combined with money raised over the last few years, AGA has met the goal. The new gym floor is scheduled to be installed this summer around the same time that the remodeling process for the school should be completed.
In January, the school facility suffered flooding due to a frozen pipe that burst. It flooded three floors of the school. Several classes have been meeting in church classrooms for the remainder of the year, and the teachers and students are very excited about the completion of the project and the new look of the school.
With the combination of the new gym floor and the newly remodeled classrooms, kitchen and hallways, the entire school will get a major face-lift before the new school year.
