The Academy of Mount St. Ursula held a thank you event (on site), to thank the generous supporters in donating more than $844,085, to make capital improvements for the building. Improvements were made over the summer:
- Replaced the roof in the gymnasium. It was completely removed and replaced due to leaking. The project was completed before causing extensive damage to the gym floor.
- Replaced the windows and blinds throughout the building. This much needed improvement will greatly improve the insulation of the building, create a safer environment, reduce energy loss, provide more light to AMSU and make our building look great as well!
- New vending machines added.
- Next, the school will replace the fire alarm systems, front door aluminum, and brick façade/rust.
