Moments with Merritt – May/June 2024

As we wrap up another school year, P-CCS is already planning for next year.  An important part of our planning will take place as we welcome our youngest learners and their families to the district.  Key P-C-C-S staff members are making plans for Pre-School, Young Fives, and Kindergarten registration, along with open registration for all grade levels.  Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Monica L. Merritt spoked with a couple key educators in the preparation for our youngest learners including Executive Director of Elementary Education, Dr. Denise Lilly, and Dodson Elementary Kindergarten Teacher, Joanna Perry.

This edition of Moments with Merritt will air on Tuesday May 21, 28, and June 4, at 5:40 p.m.

88.1 the Park Amplification Capital Campaign

After more than 50 years of operating in essentially the same space, 88.1 the Park is in need of significant upgrades. On May 10th, 2024, we launched the Amplification Capital Campaign to raise funds to convert a classroom into a series of editing, recording, and interview studios, a staff room, and storage space. The $517,000 estimate for the capital campaign includes architecture fees, construction costs, HVAC considerations, sound attenuation measures, enhanced lighting, security considerations, ADA accessibility, video capabilities, and significant equipment purchases and upgrades resulting in four additional studios.

These upgrades will allow for significantly more student participation and more than double our current studio space, allowing for more on-air content, recorded news/programming, and edited news podcasts. These upgrades will put the broadcasting environment at 88.1 the Park on par with professional studio space—helping to maintain our award-winning broadcasting quality, while creating a more professional experience for students and studio guests.

In recognition of the Rotary Club of Plymouth’s centennial (the Club was founded in 1924), the Club’s Foundation has granted $200,000 to the capital campaign. This is a last-in grant: we must raise $200,000 first in order to receive the grant. Our fundraising horizon is December 31, 2026, but we hope to have the money raised by the end of 2025.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!
