Ribbon Cutting Held for Mount Michael’s New Learning Facility
The first floor of the new addition to Mount Michael Benedictine School’s campus (www.mountmichael.com), the David “DJ” Sokol Learning for Life Building, is complete. A ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by the West O Chamber held on January 15th marked its official public debut.
The David “DJ” Sokol Learning for Life Building is Mount Michael’s first new classroom facility in decades. It was built with a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) focus to enhance the school’s college preparatory curriculum. Construction is underway on the second floor of the building and should be completed in the spring of 2018.
“The David ‘DJ’ Sokol Learning for Life Building is transformative to our campus, school and future,” said Head of School Dr. David Peters, Ed.D. “It gives our students and teachers access to the best learning tools to build upon their already strong educational foundation. I am so excited to see the amazing things our students will accomplish now that they have access to this state-of-the-art learning facility.”
