What happened:

The JCHS courtyard - the heart of our school campus - recently suffered the loss of its beautiful oak trees following damage from Hurricane Irma.  The expense of removing these trees was not one planned for by the school administration; therefore, we are looking to partner with our community of parents, alumni and supporters to make this space inviting again. 

How you can help: 

Over the summer, the school had the stumps of the old oaks removed (no easy feat!) and has been working with Kate (Cross) Rotindo, JCHS alumni and University of Florida/IFAS Extension of St. Lucie County urban horticulture agent, to create a plan to replant the beds with native and Florida friendly plants. This represents Phase One of a larger plan for this space, including revitalizing our memorial garden and a possible sunsail over the main pavilion. Your support now would help us purchase plants and other landscaping items to beautify this space; however, please reach out to principal Corey Heroux at cheroux@johncarrollhigh.com if you are interested in donating towards a larger item, such as the sunsail or benches.

Most JCHS alumni have vivid memories of their time in the courtyard - share your favorite memory below when you make your donation!
