The Madelaine Halmos Academy is growing by leaps and bounds! The crews are preparing the 1st floor slab for concrete. The reinforcing steel for the columns and beams is being installed. After reinforcing steel and form work is complete we can pour the concrete for 1st floor columns and beams.

Construction of The Madelaine Halmos Academy has reached the first floor! Now that the block walls are up, the next step will be expanding to the second floor and putting the roof on the building. The visual proliferation is great cause for excitement!

Although COVID-19 has caused our programs to transition to digital learning, we are happy to report that construction of The Madelaine Halmos Academy has not stopped! We have made tremendous strides, including laying all of the foundation for the new building. There will be a lot more visual progress in the next day or two as the masonry walls start going up, so please continue to check our social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube) and be on the look out for more email communications from us. Enrollment is now open for the 2020-2021 school year. In August, we will open our inaugural fourth grade class.
To date, we have raised $8.1 million of our $11 million goal. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and made this expanded vision possible. Thank you to Keith Arnold and Tom McManus for leading the charge as Co-Chairs of the Capital Campaign Committee. Thank you to Madelaine and Steve Halmos, Honorary Chairs, who have donated the lead gift for the campaign.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to our amazing neighbor, Dr. Michael Barnard and Broward DDS for being so patient and accommodating during this monumental period of expansion for Jack & Jill Children’s Center.
