A $20,000 donation from Remington Homes has allowed Shrine of St. Anne School to improve its technology for the new school year.
The donation, given to the schools IT Committee, was used to upgrade the school’s server and purchase 40 new HP Chromebook laptops for student use.
Theresa Donahue, principal at Shrine of St. Anne School in Olde Town Arvada, said the new technology allows students to continue to be 21st Century learners and gives teachers more instructional options.
Remington Homes is a family-run Arvada home building business started by Paul Hauptman in the late 1960s.
Over the past 40 years nearly 20 members of the Hauptman family and extended family have graduated from Shine of St. Anne School in Arvada.
“It’s neat because there are a lot of other families like ours that have had generations of kids to go through the school,” said Haley Hauptman, head of marketing for Remington Homes. “Now we’re on to the second generation. All our kids are going through the school now.”
Hauptman said that as a company they knew that if they had the opportunity to donate money somewhere in the community, it would be to St. Anne.
“We care very deeply about the school and education,” Hauptman said. “The school is a cornerstone in Olde Town Arvada and we just want it to do well and see it thrive.”
Donahue stressed the importance of such a large donation from a local company.
“It’s hard to get public donations because we are a faith-based school,” Donahue said.
“We’re so blessed and so appreciative of Remington.”
