School courtyard's paving bricks to raise funds

Enquirer Contributor

        MORROW — Three school and community groups serving the Little Miami Schools will benefit from a project to pave an octagon-shaped courtyard in front of the new high school with bricks bearing names and messages from families or businesses.

        Heading the effort is parent Corinne Curcio, who hopes the community will purchase all 1,000 bricks available along with 10, 8-foot long concrete benches also slated for the courtyard area. The concrete benches will sell for $500 and will have a plaque attached for inscriptions.

        “We're really excited about this,” Mrs. Curcio said. “It's something good for our community. It will provide a permanent marker for alumni, parents, teachers and stu dents.”

        Proceeds from the brick and bench sale will be divided among the Toys for Tots 2000 charity, the high school literary club and the Junior Class After Prom Committee, Mrs. Curcio said.

        The 4-foot by 10-foot area set aside for the bricks is designed to mirror the foyer inside the school, now being constructed along U.S. 22/Ohio 3 just outside Morrow in Hamil ton Township.

        Each brick will cost $35. Purchasers will have three lines of up to 14 characters each for their message, Mrs. Curcio said. Bricks ordered by April 1 will be laid by the time classes begin Sept. 5.

        Order forms are available at the high school, board offices or by calling Mrs. Curcio at 899-3400.
