Every gift to Thomas Metcalf Laboratory School is important and makes a difference. The Metcalf General Fund accepts unrestricted gifts that enable the school to offer opportunities to students that enrich their educational experience. With this fund we are able to provide resources for our community of students through student clubs, guest speakers, and leadership opportunities.
A top funding priority for Thomas Metcalf School is the Metcalf General Renovation Fund. The PTO is helping raise money to this account to purchase an air conditioning unit for the large gym. Our gyms are used for physical education, our Jr. Gamma Phi Circus, sporting events, ISU Wellness along with various other activities. If you have attended events in the gym in the warmer months, you might be aware that temperatures can rise above 90 degrees, with heat indices even higher. We want to support our students and families by cooling off the gyms for daily use and special events. The total cost of this project is estimated at $154,012 and fundraising efforts will continue year to year until we are able to reach our goal.
