El­e­men­tary school am­phiteater planned

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

A ground­break­ing cer­e­mony for the Le­nape El­e­men­tary School am­phithe­ater will take place at 4 p.m. Fri­day at the school on Eu­gene L. Brown Drive.

The am­phithe­ater project, led by the Duzine/Le­nape Par­ent-Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion, calls for a 500-seat per­for­mance, ed­u­ca­tion and gath­er­ing space that would serve the en­tire New Paltz school dis­trict com­mu­nity, ac­cord­ing to the dis­trict.

Le­nape El­e­men­tary School prin­ci­pal Au­drey Wood said the venue will be used for drama and mu­sic per­for­mances and the fifth grade mov­ing up cer­e­mony in June 2017.

Dis­trict Su­per­in­ten­dent Maria Rice said the space will be avail­able to the com­mu­nity when it is not be­ing used by the dis­trict.

The es­ti­mated cost of the project is $125,000, an amount the PTA is in the process of rais­ing through var­i­ous fundrais­ing ef­forts, in­clud­ing the sale of “trib­ute bricks” and a GoFund-Me page.
