The Greenville Christian School campus is getting an update, with one of the main projects being the installation of a new gymnasium floor.

School administrators said funding for the gymnasium floor was made possible by a donation from a former student. “God has blessed us over the years with some great students,” headmaster Julie Robinson said.

The gymnasium had a linoleum surface and had begun to show signs of aging in recent years explained Robinson. Workers are currently installing a new floor, and will be on site for the next several weeks. The gymnasium serves as a multi-purpose facility, and Robinson believes that the improvements will have a positive impact on the student experience for all of the current students. Robinson said that they plan on having new basketball goals installed in the near future as funding becomes available.

The campus will also have two new computer labs when the new school year starts and a new playground is in the works.

The Parent Teacher Fellowship raised $25,000 at an auction in April, with the funds going towards the purchase and installment of new playground equipment. The equipment will be installed in the coming weeks by volunteers. The majority of the old playground equipment was donated to Phoenix Charter School. “We want all the schools in the area to prosper,” Robinson said.

There are also plans to turn the annex building on the campus into an administrative building next summer. Robinson believes that the improvements will boost enrollment. She sums up the improvements as, “A physical reflection of some of the good things going on at GCS.”

And she said she foresees the improvements as a way to enrich the experience at GCS for both students and faculty.
