This year's special appeal is for security updates to both campuses. The first step in this security plan is to update the entrance on the Worth St. campus. This project will allow for a more secure entrance with double glass doors that Mrs. Gibson can buzz visitors through (similar to Dallas Rd.). Additionally, this will allow us to build out a reception area with seating and a brand new nurse's station to the right of the main entrance. Additionally, we will be updating policies and purchasing technology and additional security cameras to ensure that both campuses continue to operate under the most effective security systems.
Last year's Salute Faith Gala was an incredible blessing for our school just a few weeks before everything shut down in response to the global pandemic. Your generosity brought in $1 million which was used to support our COVID Relief Fund and the purchase of necessary equipment to go online as a school. We are also excited to see our STEAM Outdoor Learning Experience construction begin this spring as a direct result of our Special Appeal from last year's Gala.
When you give to any of Grapevine Faith's initiatives (Faith Gives, Lion Legacy Fund, Annual Gala, in-kind donations, etc.), you make it possible to advance the school's mission and vision. We are incredibly blessed to have generous families that support the vision and mission of the school.
