CHS: The Next 50 Years
A comprehensive 50th Anniversary campaign celebrating a legacy of early childhood learning and investing in the future of our students and our school.
At Concord Hill, we lay a foundation for our students that prepares them for a lifetime of learning beyond our halls. As we reflect on 50 years of excellence in early childhood education, we have an opportunity to invest in our school just as we invest in our young learners. By expanding and reimagining our learning spaces, investing in the school's endowment, and by creating a forward-thinking, modern Science & Discovery Lab to enhance our programming, we have an opportunity to prepare Concord Hill for the next 50 years.
In 2015, Concord Hill launched a comprehensive, three-tiered campaign in honor of the school's 50th Anniversary. TIER ONE and TIER TWO are now complete, and we are on our way to TIER THREE. The final phase of these exciting plans will build a brand-new Science & Discovery Lab on the third floor of our school building, creating a new, modern space for large-scale projects for all grade levels, and create significantly more learning space for all of our students.
Completed projects include upgrades to our playground, a new outdoor classroom, improvements in our Community Room and performance space, and a brand-new Makerspace.
The Denise Gershowitz Legacy Gift
The campaign also includes a contribution to the school's Endowment through the Denise Gershowitz Legacy Gift. In recognition of Denise's exemplary service, this endowed gift will forever honor her legacy through annual support of the initiatives that have been her greatest passions:
- Growing a Financial Aid program and keeping Concord Hill accessible to a wider group of families.
- Attracting and retaining the best faculty in early education for the next generation of Concord Hill students.
- Enhancing diversity and inclusiveness at Concord Hill.
