New Outdoor Commons Area Coming to FPD Campus

Over the course of the next few months, thanks to Annual Fund gifts, the corridor between the FPD Media Center and Thompson Upper School Building will get a complete new look with welcoming green spaces and outdoor student seating.

“It’s been something we have wanted to do for a while,” said Chris Childers, FPD Facilities Director. “Thanks to designated Annual Fund gifts we now have the ability to run irrigation, install seating, and provide a nice outdoor space for students.”

The corridor will provide for collaborative outdoor learning as well as serve as a gathering space for students.

Crews will begin work on the corridor over the Thanksgiving break, dependent on weather.
