Closing in on a New Opportunity
Opportunity is on the move! We're not packing boxes just yet, but we have closed on the property that will house the new Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center. The 3.7 acre site at the corner of Donnell and Westgate Roads was donated anonymously.
You'll be hearing more about the new campus this fall as we are on target to break ground in September. The new campus will allow Opportunity to welcome up to 200 children and give us more space for family programs.
The expansion is moving forward thanks to the generosity of David and Jillian Gilmour, Robert and Christine Stiller, the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, Fred and Gail Alger and many others.
Congratulations Class of 2016
Watch out kindergarten, here come the Opportunity graduates! On May 5, Opportunity said farewell to the 38 students who completed the pre-kindergarten programs. Dressed in their navy blue caps and gowns, the students showed off their vocabulary and math skills and serenaded their parents. The new graduates proudly walked across the stage at the Berean Christian School to receive their diplomas.
After the ceremony the children and their families were treated to a reception sponsored by Searcy, Denney, Scarola, Barnhart & Shipley. The students will begin their new educational adventure this fall.
Great Give 2016
Three cheers for everyone who supported Opportunity during the Great Give 2016! Although the online giving day suffered quite a few technical challenges, we were able to raise more than $16,626 including bonus pool dollars.
A big "Grazie"to Grato for hosting our Sip & Support. The delicious food and cocktails helped wash away any lingering frustrations with the donation website and call line. In 24 hours you helped change our community!
Have a Safe & Happy Summer!
