As Alpine School District prepares to rebuild Central Elementary, the center also is poised to enter a new era, with plans for a new planetarium, two more simulators, and equipment that will bring the most recent footage from outer space right before students’ eyes.
“The District and the tens of thousands of students it serves can look forward to a tremendous resource for learning and fun through this generous gift by the Edward St. John Foundation,” states Rob Smith, Assistant Superintendent for Alpine School District. “Generous partners like the Edward St. John Foundation play a key role in meeting the financial challenges in what is now Utah’s largest school district. We look forward to other organizations joining us in this season of giving.”
With this charitable donation, kids from all over the state of Utah can “explore strange new world, seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man or woman has gone before.”
