Grant and Gifts Update!
Brand New Gymnasium in the Works!
We are thrilled to announce that San Carlos School will be replacing the current Old Hall/Gymnasium with a new state-of-the-art facility in 2022, thanks to the incredible generosity of current grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Dove! The project is scheduled to begin with the demolition of the Old Hall in the fall of this year. If all goes well, the new facility will be available for student use in Fall 2022.
As many of you know, the school’s Old Hall/Gymnasium is in desperate need of replacement, and SCS is very excited for this new project to begin. The new facility will not only give the school’s Physical Education Program and all sports teams a huge boost, but it will also provide more space for school events and performances for all students now and in the future. It will include additional office and storage space and important technology upgrades for better school sporting events, presentations, and performances.
What a tremendous blessing for the entire San Carlos School community!
The Pebble Beach Company Foundation continued to support San Carlos School with another generous grant to help fund the continuation of our Accelerated Reader Program for Grades 1 through 8, the purchase of 17 new Chromebooks for use in English Language Arts, Math, and Spanish, and the replacement of outdated Wi-Fi access points.
The William McCaskey Chapman & Adaline Dinsmore Chapman Foundation awarded SCS another wonderful grant for our Tuition Assistance Program. These funds will be used to assist families in need of financial support to allow their children to attend San Carlos School. The need for these funds has increased significantly due to the pandemic.
The Monterey Peninsula Foundation kindly donated funds to SCS in conjunction with the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am despite the fact that spectators were not allowed and volunteers were not needed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
In response to our request for pandemic relief, San Carlos School has been awarded significant funding through the EANS (Emergency Assistance to Non-Public Schools) Program. The purpose of this program is to provide services or assistance to eligible Non-Public Schools to address the impact and educational disruptions that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on non-public school students and teachers in the state.
Funding includes reimbursement for sanitation supplies, personal protective equipment, portable air purification systems, physical barriers for social distancing, and other materials recommended by the CDC to maintain the health and safety of the SCS community. In addition, funding covers educational technology, revised instructional plans, curriculum development, and ongoing services.
