2023 has been a banner year for updating spaces around St. Paul’s! Through the 2023 Auction Fund-a-Need campaign, St. Paul’s parents raised $186,000 to upgrade the school’s Manica Multipurpose Room and surrounding spaces. With this generous support, we:
- Created four meeting spaces for student support services including: speech and occupational therapy, education support, counseling, and after school enrichment.
- Built a new performance stage with soundproof walls which now serves as a permanent classroom for Mrs. O’Connell’s toddler through second grade music classes.
- Freshened up the lunchroom with new flooring, paint, windows, and furniture. We also added a new breakout space for students, faculty, and staff.
We are grateful to our community for supporting this worthy initiative. Now, students can relax and unwind with friends at lunch in this brighter, streamlined space. Faculty and staff love having dedicated spaces to use for one-on-one counseling, academic coaching, music and creative movement classes, and parent education events.

Renovation projects like this make it clear how much the St. Paul’s community cares about the overall daily well-being of our students and faculty. Many thanks to our generous parent community for supporting these Fund-a-Need fundraising efforts year after year.
