Recognizing the need to address outdated science classrooms, Timothy assembled a task force more than a year ago. Timothy’s School and Foundation boards unanimously gave their enthusiastic endorsement and approval of the project.
“We embarked on a capital campaign to fund this project because we needed more space and because we’ve already outgrown our existing footprint,” said Superintendent Matt Davidson. “We looked at remodeling existing science space, but this would not have addressed the need for more classrooms, and it wouldn’t have as big of an impact on our science program."
“Our science faculty and program are outstanding. Our students are gifted. But our facility was old. 'His Faithfulness Continues' is a campaign about God’s faithfulness to the Timothy community for more than 100 years. This campaign is about continuing the story of God’s faithfulness to the Timothy community in a very tangible way – a building addition,” Mr. Davidson said.
