EAST RISING: Be part of bringing this stunning renovation to our beloved neighborhood school.
Welcome to the Milton McPike Fieldhouse Renovation Project, a critical upgrade that will serve East High students well and provide a point of pride for the whole community. Help bring this exciting project to completion with a contribution today! It’s a great investment in our kids and community.
This redesign will enable East to host more than 2,500 spectators, increasing its capacity as a community gathering space and positioning it to, like other area high schools, host WIAA events. The new facility will allow East to convene the entire student body in one space, which is not currently possible. Renovation will bring East High athletics more efficiently together in one shared area of the building, offering exceptional spaces for students and staff.
A welcoming main event entrance will include space for restrooms, concessions, ticket sales, offices and a weight room.
Construction will begin in June 2019 with a completion sometime in 2020. Once completed, the McPike Field House will give young people on the East Side more opportunities to get involved in sports. In addition to improving the experience for East’s students, others in the locality will be able to participate in a wide variety of activities at low costs, making programs affordable for residents of all ages and backgrounds. The facility has the potential to be a wonderful community center, a valuable component of the Eastside’s transformation!
