The Book Nook & Lantern Stairwell

Among the many security improvements gained from the renovation and expansion project, one of the most important is placing the School wing behind a second set of secure doors. Additionally, the renovation allows the schools to reclaim the space under the current school stairwell (by the elevator) and turn it into a “Book Nook” designed for our early readers to explore books in a safe, secure, comfortable, and developmentally appropriate setting. In the design renderings below, you can see several angles showcasing different aspects of this unique new space, which lies just beyond the new main lobby.

This is one of many spaces that are open to naming opportunities through the Honor our Heritage Build our Future Campaign. If early childhood development & reading and our early childhood school programs are something that are particularly meaningful to you, we hope you will consider making a Cornerstone pledge to have this space named in your honor.
