Science wing update

Posted: June 15, 2017

 

EXCITING IMPROVEMENTS ARE

HAPPENING AT BROTHER RICE!

 

The school year has wrapped up and we have excitedly begun construction on Phase 3 of the Science & Engineering Wing updates.  This phase includes the addition of two new classrooms with state of the art laboratories, and is expected to cost approximately $900,000.  Through the support of our generous donors, a commitment from our board of directors and a portion of funds raised from Irish Nite and other school fundraisers, the execution of this phase is now possible.

A much needed make-over of our Student Cafeteria Center is also in the works.  In addition to our students daily lunch breaks, many of our school meetings and events, including the Annual Brother’s Brunch, take place in this location.

While continuing to deliver a faith filled culture of academic, personal and athletic excellence, we must also focus on our facilities and meeting the needs of generations to come.  As such, with the updates this summer, we have renewed our commitment to providing our students with the best possible opportunity to continue to compete and win academically, specifically in the STEM area.

Contributions to our Annual Fund, support vital endeavors including capital improvements, technology upgrades, teacher enrichment and tuition assistance. If you would like more information on these projects, and how you can help, please contact President Tom Reidy, Reidy@brrice.edu or Director of Advancement Brian Dilworth, Dilworth@brrice.edu, or reach them at 248-833-2000.

 

 

 

 

 

After a recent tour of the renovation work in progress, Principal Okuniewski was particularly impressed by the pace of which the construction team is making progress. “It’s exciting to see this update really taking shape. We want to stay on the cutting edge of opportunities for our students interested in STEM career fields, and this renovation is necessary to achieve that goal. The added technology combined with upgraded lab stations integrated directly into our classrooms really maximizes the learning space, allowing students to seamlessly transition from lecture to lab with interactive technology and enhanced opportunities for collaboration.”
