Since Community School’s founding in 1973, school leaders have taken steps to build the physical infrastructure required for the school to live its mission and provide students with an exceptional learning environment. The Parents’ Association (PA) and student-led Cutthroat Business Club (CBC) propose to remodel the gym and Theatre foyer to serve the mission of the school, support their activities and initiatives, boost school spirit, and advance the school’s marketing, branding, and enrollment efforts.
The PA and CBC seek to remodel the gym and Theatre foyer—the most heavily trafficked single point on campus for students, families, and visitors alike—to create Cutthroat Commons, a space that would allow for a dedicated school store, refresh a key campus focal point, and enhance school spirit, marketing, and enrollment efforts. The proposed remodel would include the following:
Students, parents, and hundreds of visitors—i.e., Company B, Sun Valley Symphony Summer Music Institute, and nexStage summer theater program participants, as well as campus headliner and event attendees—use the foyer year round. However, the space is dated and in need of refurbishment and ripe for a remodel that would incorporate additional functionality.
The remodel of the gym and theatre foyer will refresh a key campus focal point, upgrade the first impression the space imparts, and enhance the onsite student, parent, and visitor experience:
Cutthroat Commons will result in many tangible benefits for Community School students, parents, and visitors alike. The Parents’ Association and student-led Cutthroat Business Club welcome your support and involvement and would be delighted to offer you a tour of the proposed project remodel.
The Cutthroat Business Club (CBC) provides opportunities for Upper School students to learn about business, entrepreneurship, and finance while supporting fundraising and spirit initiatives in support of Community School. Club members play a role in managing Cutthroat Commons and Cutthroat Clothing, develop school spirit programming, and benefit from educational opportunities related to business.
