Cool the School!

Thomas Metcalf School is raising money to purchase an air conditioning unit for the large gym. Our gyms are used for physical education, our Jr. Gamma Phi Circus, sporting events, ISU Wellness along with various other activities. If you have attended events in the gym in the warmer months, you might be aware that temperatures can rise above 90 degrees, with heat indices even higher. We want to support our students and families by cooling off the gyms for daily use and special events. 

The total cost of this project is estimated at $154,012 so fundraising efforts will continue year to year until we are able to reach our goal.

To date, Metcalf has accumulated $10,892 in the Metcalf School General Renovation Fund, which is the fund we are bolstering tonight.

Our goal tonight is to raise $9,108 to surpass $20,000 but we feel we can exceed that goal and have our largest Montage fundraiser ever. Make your gift tonight to help kick off this effort toward cooling the school!

I'm in!

Thank you for helping to cool the school!


Ice Ice Baby

Let's stop, collaborate, and listen, we are in need of new aircondition'! Act now, and donate, don't melt like Vanilla Ice-cream. Great health starts with opportunity for exercise and activities. Your gift will help provide a much "cooler" environment and space to do that.


Richard Simmons

Sweating to the oldies? Not even Richard Simmons would want to sweat it out in a gym without air conditioning. Neither do we. Let's make spectator sweating a thing of the past. Your donation will help make this possible.


Raising the bar

Thanks for raising the bar to lower the temperatures in the gym! Our student athletes can train better and improve faster, creating better opportunities for success.


Bringing the heat

"Bringing the heat" in your donation to make us "comfortable in our seat." Families can safely and comfortably attend activities held in the gym with fewer heat related health concerns.



Maverick, it's not your flying, it's your attitude that is dangerous. So is the heat in a gym during much of the year. With your donation you can be as cool and fly as high as "Iceman." Thank you for helping make the gym a much safer environment!


Queen Elsa

Can we just call you Queen Elsa, or do you prefer Olaf? You are truly making this dream a reality! We can almost feel it now! Thank you for doing "The Next Right Thing."
