Alumni Association plans paver garden on campusand help us meet our goal of $13,000 in sales to begin installation inNovember 2018!
From Superintendent Andy Comstock:
District 32 will soon be home to a beautiful paver garden, thanks to our alumni and a local business.
Perryville High School Alumni Association has partnered with Earthworks of Perryville to create this stunning landscape feature in the Pirate Plaza. This area lies between Perryville High School and the Old Senior High, and created in 1994 by the Alumni Association.
The original improvements to the plaza included the landscaping, installation of the wrought iron fencing and the addition of the decorative light poles. The centerpiece of the Pirate Plaza is the district’s historic flagpole, gifted to the school in 1938 by the community’s World War I veterans.
The paver garden will be centered on the flagpole, and will feature natural stone pavers in three sizes, as well as natural stone benches. All of the stone for the project is being donated by Earthworks; owner Kevin Thieret is a proud 1969 alumnus of PHS.
The Alumni Association will pre-sell the pavers and benches beginning in January, with the installation planned to begin in June 2018. You can find the Alumni Association’s flyer on their website at www.perryville.k12.mo.us/Alumni.
The Alumni Association has a long history of supporting District 32’s schools through its campus improvement projects, classroom grants and scholarships to graduating seniors. The paver garden will generate the funding that the Association needs to continue this work on behalf of our schools, our staff and our children.
The Pirate Plaza Paver Garden project will give our Pirate families and our community a perfect way to commemorate important life events while providing the important financial support the association depends upon.
We’re all so incredibly grateful to the Alumni Association officers and Earthworks for creating such an impressive plan to further beautify our campus.
