While Crescent families were enjoying their summer, our campus was undergoing some key upgrades in preparation for the school year. One such project was the installation of grasslike turf on the Formal Garden, transforming the surface into a lush yet virtually indestructible lawn. In addition to providing a more beautiful and safer play area for students, the new surface resolves issues around water management and slope stabilization. “This project reflects another milestone of our Master Campus Plan, and further supports our staff and students being outdoors to enjoy the beauty of our campus,” says Headmaster Fellin.
The transformation was funded by the Crescent Parent Association, part of a generous pledge made in the 2020–2021 school year. “We are so pleased to celebrate the completion of the Formal Gardens renovation, which came to fruition through the generosity of the CPA in the third year of our seven-year pledge to the school,” says current CPA President Sherri Neldner. “We are grateful for the support of the parent community!”
