Lancaster Mennonite’s original classroom building, opened in 1964, houses several of our core subject areas; English, Bible, and Social Studies, and needs updating. The original portion of the building most often referred to as the ‘64 Wing, still has the original finishes and colors, and lacks air conditioning. While no air conditioning has been a character building opportunity for 55 years, it’s time to upgrade and improve the learning environment.
At LM, building on the rock established in 1942, is now embarking on a complete renovation of the 1964 classroom wing to provide a healthy, positive, and innovative learning environment for its high school students.
The renovations will include:
- Adding air conditioning and updating the old, inadequate heating system
- Restroom upgrades
- Lighting upgrades in the classrooms and hallways
- Window treatment updates and fresh paint
Demolition for construction started in May! We were grateful to be able to start construction early. Since school buildings have been closed since March 13 it allowed us to start construction earlier than expected.
We are so thankful for the generous support we’ve received so far for this project! Look at what has been accomplished already!
LM is demonstrating good stewardship of the gifts we’ve received by keeping our costs down and leveraging our talented staff in the project:
- Our System Plant Manager, Troy Hurst, is serving as the General Contractor on the overall project and managing subcontractors.
- Our Maintenance and Facilities Staff participated in the initial demolition, and this helped us keep them employed full-time during COVID-19 closures.
We welcome your prayer and financial support of this project.
