St. Mary Catholic School expands facilities

WILMINGTON - Middle school students at the downtown St. Mary Catholic School returned to expanded facilities Monday. With grants from the PPD corporation and other private donors, the school renovated the second floor of its historic Tileston building. The building was built in 1871 and hasn't been touched up since the mid-1990s. The new additions included refurbished classrooms, and new science and computer labs. School officials welcomed the changes. St. Mary's Principal Joyce Price said, "We are so blessed to be able to return to the Tileston building because we've been consolidated in the lower school for the past five years. And with the growth here in Wilmington and the growth in our school population we are now able to revisit our classrooms here in Tileston." School officials estimate the total cost of the renovations to be over $25,000.
