SSPP launches fundraiser to ‘fill’ new high school

-

EASTON — The all-new Saints Peter and Paul High School is nearing completion and the school is asking for the community’s support to furnish the building with resources for the students.

The “Fill the School” campaign requests monetary donations that will be used to purchase desks, technology, equipment and resources, giving students a top-notch opportunit­y to enhance their skills for life and career goals.

The new high school is on target to be completed by fall 2021, and the community can visit ssppeaston.weshareonl­ine.org/filloursch­ool to make one-time or recurring donations for the new facilities.

The rollout for the campaign occurred during Catholic Schools Week, in which students participat­ed in activities celebratin­g Catholic education locally and around the nation. Saints Peter & Paul High School welcomes the community to join the celebratio­n finale by raising money for the “Fill the School” campaign.

School and parish officials broke ground on the estimated $18 million high school and Family Life Center on Feb. 5, 2020. The complex, under constructi­on by Willow Constructi­on, is located next to Saints Peter and Paul church, off U.S. Route 50 in Easton.

The new school will be a beacon for first-class, faith-based education for

current and future students. The community can be a valuable partner in the new school by donating to the “Fill the School” campaign.
