What We're Raising Money For in 2020/21


Located in downtown’s International Village, Crosstown Elementary School is a 4-storey school that offers programs for students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. The 47,350 square foot school also features 22 classrooms, a full-sized gymnasium and daycare. Students enjoy a rooftop playground and patio area. The school has an innovative design that provides a 21st century learning environment for 510 students. The first portion of construction required the full structural and seismic upgrading of the existing parkade to ensure it could support the new structure. We extensively modified the existing structure to introduce a new elevator shaft. The parkade remained fully-operational throughout the entire construction process.
