COLORADO AVENUE — Saint Anne School will honor donors who funded a new music and science building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.
“This facility allows us to expand and enrich our offerings in science and music by providing a dedicated space where curiosity, discovery and exploration in those disciplines can occur and thrive,” said Principal Michael Browning.
The honored donors include the Macerich Corp. & Santa Monica Place, Dr. and Mrs. James Peter and The Ahmanson Foundation, who helped fund science lab supplies. The gifts were in honor of Les Frost, retired headmaster of St. Matthew’s Parish School, according to a statement by Saint Anne School.
Saint Anne, a Catholic elementary School, offers a variety of programs in music, science, technology and more. The school also honored a number of nonprofit community organizations, including P.S. Science and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Monica, that helped make these programs possible. The new building is also used during the day for after-school and mentoring programs.
“The Saint Anne School Music & Science Pavilion represents the culmination of several years’ effort and the contributions of many donors and nonprofit organizations in our community,” Browning added.
