neither the current gym nor the originally planned second gym can
comfortably hold events accommodating all parents or grandparents.
Neither can they any longer accommodate a general assembly for all
grades. Feedback from a number of parents and alumni revealed to
us that the Cub tradition of coming together as one K-12 family is
too important to lose. Because of the overwhelming success of the
Capital Campaign, I asked the volunteer leadership to consider the
possibilities of expanding the gym which was originally planned into
a larger multi-purpose facility.

The potential for such a facility is remarkable. Rather than just
another moderately sized gym, we are striving for a much larger and
more functional space - a multi-use facility which would include a
stage as well as sufficient seating capacity for school-wide assemblies
and for special family events. The stage and seating would provide
both elementary and secondary schools the ability to schedule their
events, plays and musicals concurrently, allowing more flexibility
for the faculty and administration. Performing arts environments
could be expanded into the mixed purpose facility, enhancing our
design plans for instrumental and vocal music, dance and drama.
(This will actually be less expensive than adding an extension to
the current performing arts building.) Of course, the gymnasium
component remains a key and critical element of the facility, as our
health, physical education and athletics programs remain in dire
need of functional, indoor space.

You may think we would need several million dollars to implement
this vision. With our capital campaign volunteers raising one
million more than their goal and because of very careful stewardship
of our funds, our cost projections indicate only $500,000 additional
dollars can make this much greater project a reality. Therefore, I
have challenged our Campaign Chairmen and they have agreed to a
Stretch Goal of $500,000 additional dollars. They have accepted the
challenge enthusiastically being of the belief that this opportunity is
simply too important to forgo.

If you’ve thought about supporting this effort and just haven’t
followed through, I ask you to please seriously consider a stretch

    n conjunction with the
    thirteenth annual Earth
    Day Groceries Project,
University Laboratory School
students from grades K – 12
decorated 700 paper grocery bags
with messages and artwork to
demonstrate their commitment
to the environment. On Earth
Day, April 22, the following stores
packed groceries in these bags to
expand environmental awareness:
Albertson’s on College Drive, Bet-R
Grocery on Kalurah Street, Living Biology II senior Katie Stein with first graders             Biology II 12th graders Forrest Faerber and Zoe Bruce with first graders
Foods on Perkins Road, Maxwell’s
Market on Corporate Boulevard, and Winn-Dixie on Lee Drive.

University High School science teacher Marty Loupe and his fellow participants from the Toyota International Teacher Program’s Costa
Rica Tour Study Group in March collaborated to join this nationwide effort to continue to expand students’ and their local communities’
environmental knowledge and awareness. Additionally, with the support of Education First (EF), Loupe also led a group of thirteen University
High School students to Costa Rica in June to learn more about environmental science.

The Earth Day Groceries Project is designed to enhance students’ environmental knowledge, along with skills in art, computer science,
geography, math and science. It helps educate and empower youth to make a difference in their communities. The Earth Day Groceries Project
is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, and is managed online by its founder Mark Ahlness, a third grade teacher at Arbor Heights Elementary
School in Seattle, Washington. This is the fourteenth year this international educational effort has been coordinated on the internet.
