Dear Portledge Community,

As you can see looking out over the Portledge fields, there are a lot of exciting things happening at the site of the Athletics and Wellness Center (AWC). The tree work and the new on-campus roadway have been completed which is included as part of our current Master Plan. As recommended by a professional audit and study, the new road will direct vehicles along the campus perimeter, allowing for optimal traffic flow, easier vehicle access, and, perhaps most importantly, eliminating the need for pedestrians to cross a road to get from one building to another. We have also completed the "quad" that connects the Wellington Gym, the Commons, the Upper and Middle Schools and eventually, the AWC. 

We have also begun to build the berm needed on the west side of campus along the AWC site. It is essential to mention that the new road and the berm are integral components of the building.

With so much to look forward to as we begin this academic year, it is my wish that you all enjoy a wonderful summer. I also want to use this opportunity to once again thank you for your generous commitment to our school. Your philanthropic investment undoubtedly allows us to focus on the future that we want for all Portledge students. Please know that all at Portledge have immense gratitude for your efforts.  

As we move through the next few months, we will continue to update you on the status of the road and the progress of the campaign for the AWC.
