Thank You for Supporting The Children's Challenge

Thank you for joining the Kornmann Family in supporting the Children's Challenge! The generosity of our community led to our most successful Children's Challenge ever, raising more than $411,000 to build a new playground for our lower school students and a recreation room for our upper school. 

As a thank you for your generosity, we would like to offer you this commemorative sweatshirt from the Bonne Chance Auction's Golden Jubilee. Please fill out the form and you can retrieve your sweatshirt from the Portry of the 1929 Main Building June 13 - 17 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm or select to be contacted to arrange for alternative times. 

The Kornmann Family Playground will replace the existing playground behind the Duchesne Building with all-new equipment, a drainage system to address the poor run-off, and enhanced interaction for children aged 2 through 12. Students can dig in the new sandbox, spin out on the Christmas Tree Spinner, and climb to new heights on the Geo Web.

The Kenefick Recreational Room will be a place for students in grades 7-12 to come together. Whether it's ping-pong, foosball, pinball, or outdoor games like giant jenga, hillbilly golf, and checkers, the students will love the new space to relax and rejuvenate! 

For more information about the Bonne Chance Auction, the Kornmann Family Playground, or the Kenefick Recreational Room, please contact Deborah O. Schlattman, Director of Advancement, at or Dominic A. Key, Manager of Community Engagement and Campus Improvements, at
