Fundraising has taken a different meaning for Harmony School in recent years. On October 4th, 2015, Columbia, SC suffered a devastating flood that destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses, including our small non-profit school. We had serious flooding in our main building where our three classrooms of preschool and kindergarten children resided.
Due to the extensive damage to the building, the cost of renovations to bring up to code, and red tape with permits, it became evident that restoring our preschool building to its former self was neither financially feasible nor prudent. Now we are faced with the gargantuan task that is building a new preschool building by the elementary building, away from the flood-zone. We are so thankful for the patience of our families while we have carefully and deliberately considered our options.
After two years of fundraising, we are pleased to announce that we will be breaking ground on our new building in 2018. Our new 5,000 square foot preschool building will feature four spacious classrooms and three covered porches for outdoor learning.
