St. Anthony Park: COMPLETED August 2018

We would like to thank our staff and families for their patience and support throughout this process, and our partners for their continued commitment to the future of our school: St. Anthony Community Council, St. Anthony Fourth of July Committee, Parks and Recreation, St. Paul Public Works, and the St. Anthony Park Community.
 

St. Anthony Park - Remodeling Project

 

BACKGROUND

  In spring 2016, St. Anthony Park Elementary began the design process for building renovations that is based on SPPS’ 10‐year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to ensure its school buildings are able to meet the 21st century learning needs of students.   The scope of work includes:

  • An addition will be built to house the main office, cafeteria and kitchen.
  • A second story will also be built over the current single story to add instructional spaces.

Break ground: Summer 2017; Completion: Ready for fall 2018   Variances: The approved variances are for site coverage and to allow for less on-site parking than required to maintain as much open outdoor space as possible; variances were approved on January 4, 2017 by the City of St. Paul.   See update to the St. Anthony Park Community Council, November 2016 Board Meeting   SCHOOL DESIGN COMMITTEE


To help inform the renovations, a School Design Committee was formed and made up of district and academic leaders, teachers, students, families, community members and key partners. Through the guidance of a Steering Committee, the School Design Committee collaborated with architects and engineers on the design concept for the project. To provide input on the renovations, the School Design Committee participated in four workshops. The goals, activities and outcomes of each workshop is outlined below.

WORKSHOP 1: WHERE ARE WE?
