DEWITT, NY – Manlius Pebble Hill school has opened its new $7 million arts and athletic complex.
The 28,000-square-foot addition features new basketball and volleyball courts, locker rooms, a fitness center, and a trainer’s room.
A separate wing includes large art rooms, digital studio space and galleries to highlight the sculptures, sketches and paintings students create.
MPH Board President and alumnus John Mezzalingua funded the $7 million facility, which is dedicated to his parents, Kathleen and Daniel Mezzalingua.
Daniel Mezzalingua graduated in 1956 from The Manlius School, which later merged with the Pebble Hill School to form MPH. Five of Daniel’s six children graduated from MPH, including his late daughter Laurie. The Laurie Mezzalingua ’86 Center for Early Learning also was funded by the Mezzalingua family,
John Mezzalingua graduated from MPH in 1985, and his four children are current students.
Head of School Jim Dunaway said the space allows the school to broaden students’ experience.
“We now have a place where the entire school community can gather, where students have the needed resources and space to pursue their interests and develop their gifts more fully,” he said.
