Fall 2019 Renovation Progress Update

Construction at 242 Hoyt Street is well under-way. We are on-time and on-budget, as projected thanks to the tireless project management efforts of Dr. Sara Asmussen. On her LinkedIn profile, Dr. Asmussen stated, "It’s hard to believe that 4 years ago, when I started down the road to getting a bond and buying a building, it would actually happen. But here we are, four years later. New Dawn is just months away from a beautiful new home." New Dawn Charter Schools anticipates returning to their founding location at the end of the academic school year. In the meantime, October was the month where contractors completed full demolition and began to install new plumbing and heating capacities on all floors. It was a pleasure for members of New Dawn's Administrative team to visit the location and see scaffolding up and prepared for exterior work. The building that will be instrumental in educating over 400 students per-year in Brooklyn, New York. This Build NYC Resource project is an incredible milestone, not just for New Dawn Charter Schools, but for all Charter Schools who look forward to expansion and growth. 

Mid-Summer 2019

As we begin a new academic school year, New Dawn Charter Schools completed a move from their founding location at 242 Hoyt Street to 760 Dekalb Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. Demolition and scoping of the project began immediately at the 242 Hoyt Street. Not a second of time was misplaced or wasted at the start of the project, our goal is to keep pushing through, and exceed everyone's expectations for our students, staff, and community in Carroll Gardens. We are delighted to be located temporarily in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn while our home is being prepared for our return. 

July 2019

Saying good-bye to our 2019 graduates was another bitter-sweet moment in our school year, traditionally we meet this time of year with exhilaration and excitement, but we also know that we will miss these amazing and talented individuals who make every day special for our team. This year held additional moments for our New Dawn family as we embarked on packing, relocating, and our $20 million purchase and renovation project at 242 Hoyt Street, Brooklyn, New York, broke ground. Spring had us bustling with the end of the school year, and also had our Executive Director and administrative team coordinating and celebrating the purchase of our founding location where we've been since 2013 and the award of the NYC Build Bond which was brokered and secured by B.C. Ziegler Company. Below are photos of our final packing and moving!
